Business Students Celebrated International Women’s Day on 05.03.14

Challenged to explore gender equality, 3 groups of Business Students were tasked to put together a conference that championed local women and their business achievements.

Throughout the day our visitors and students were treated to a list of motivational speeches from:
Kerry Bofiglio Bains – MD Appointments Personnel and Governor for NULC
Hannah Ault – PR and Marketing Manager for Emma Bridgewater Pottery
Susan Foreman – Dean for the Faculty of Business and Law at Staffordshire University
Fred Bramham – Business Consultant and Lecturer
Theresa Kirkham Blair – Equality & Diversity Advisor and Alison Morgan – Unison Representative.

To support our International Women's Day celebration, our local group of Soroptomists set up a stall in our reception to share information about their organisation.  They spoke with students about the work they undertake to give women a voice locally and globally, through awareness raising, advocacy and action.
