We’ve been a bit quiet for a couple of weeks, we have had a lot of February birthdays and the month has been crazy busy so we needed to take a breath. This is a bit of a random post which includes some great events which are coming up and we also wanted to share some book recommendations.
International Women’s Day is fast approaching and we are running an event with our friends at Runway East on Friday 6th March. This years theme is #eachforequal
An equal world is an enabled world. How will you help forge a gender equal world? Celebrate women’s achievement. Raise awareness against bias. Take action for equality.
Please join us from 3pm where we will be celebrating International Women’s Day 2020 through equal measure cocktails and a pub quiz. You can get a ticket here
There are a couple of other events happening around Bristol which look really interesting that I have shared below:
Women in FinTech breakfast and networking event. They are celebrating local success stories as leaders share their experience and describe what success means to them. What motivated them? Where did help come from? How did they overcome challenges along the way? Tickets here
WINS International Women’s Day (IWD2020) fundraiser
” Join us to celebrate International Women’s Day (IWD) with this inspiring fundraiser* event for women of all backgrounds & ages.

There are a few more events happening across the city on Friday however these stood out.
I also was keen to share a couple of books which I have read yesterday and would highly recommend;
An eye-opening book provides a startling perspective on the unseen bias at work in our everyday lives. From government policy and medical research, to technology, workplaces, urban planning and the media, Invisible Women reveals the biased data that excludes women. In making the case for change, this powerful and provocative book will make you see the world anew.
Thank you Nic for the recommendation.
A recommendation from Alice Stephenson – Founder and CEO of Stephenson Law. In a nutshell, we’re rewarding the traditional, overconfident and underperforming male standards of leadership and overlooking competent women (and men) as a result.
So yep a bit of a random post, hope you liked it we’re back next week with a family interview and the week after is one where you’ll need a tissue handy. <3
