FRIDAY 3RD MARCH 2-5PM 2023
Projects in the Lanes
The Dome Room
Nile House, Nile Street
✧ What are the most pressing issues for women in the UK right now?
✧ What's the effect and how can we create change?
✧ What works now that we can celebrate and leave behind?
You may not feel like an activist. You might not even be attracted to the word ‘feminist’. But if you don’t think there are any equality issues for women in the UK – well, then it’s time to listen up! The truth is, in-equality is all around us, to such a degree we can’t ignore it.
The more we talk about inequality, the more we can work towards change. The ripple effect will grow across the the borders of the UK and all around the world.
This is the third part of a series of conversations among women, where we have honed in on the most pressing matters the women are battling at the moment to vocalise them, discuss solutions and take action by approaching the right people to create change.

An event organised by:
THE VLOG ACADEMY & EYESTORM GLOBAL
UN Women UK Delegate
After 25 years in film and TV production, I started The Vlog Academy, to teach business owners how to create their own smartphone videos. But I soon saw that women needed their own support platform. They had different questions, different fears, different blocks.
My visibility programme for women in business, EyeStorm, was born.
This opened up a whole new level of engagement for women empowerment and gender equality.
EyeStorm has now grown into an award winning community with events and workshops and I’m very proud to chair the G100 Media Arts & Communication wing in the UK, where we work for gender equality and strive to give women around the world a stronger voice.
