The P3 Network, with the support of Simmons & Simmons
The P3 Network, with the support of Simmons & Simmons and Macquarie and their respective gender and LGBT diversity networks, are proud to help break the silence with a ground-breaking panel event discussion about the experiences of women dealing with, and overcoming, infertility and miscarriage.
Despite one in four pregnancies ending in miscarriage and one in eight couples experiencing infertility, breaking the silence on infertility and pregnancy loss remains taboo. Those who have experienced infertility and pregnancy loss can often find it challenging to share their experiences with others and those who have not experienced either event may react uncomfortably when told of someone’s struggle. Many women suffering these common life events might experience feelings of shame even though most causes of infertility and miscarriage are not under their direct control. Open and compassionate discussions about reproductive difficulties is necessary to lessen self-imposed and perceived social stigma.
The event promises an honest, open and frank discussion about the realities of experiencing infertility or miscarriage. The event will be a safe space for all, and while the discussion focuses on the experiences of women, men are invited and encouraged to attend.

CELEBRATE INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY WITH US
This year’s IWD theme, #BalanceforBetter, is a call to action to improve gender balance in our boardrooms, governments, media and sports coverage, in attainment of wealth and more. Yet many of us are looking to company leaders, government officials and policy makers to bring gender balance to our world. Of course, we all know that, in order to achieve a change in societal norms, the change must start with us. So, instead of asking others to drive gender balance, each one of us can take small steps that will lead us to a better balance in life and work.
Let’s explore what steps each one of us can take to facilitate a more gender-balanced world. Join Rina Goldenberg Lynch, CEO of Voice At The Table, for this LIVE webinar and learn how you can make a difference and become an agent of change.

Our panel includes:
- Susie Green – Since starting as CEO of Mermaids in January 2016 following 16 years of involvement as a parent and trustee, Susie has expanded Mermaids capacity and funding, and working with the trustee board, has successfully grown and developed services, and aims to continue this success into the future. Her passion is to ensure that families and young people can access the support they need to empower them to achieve the best outcomes possible in often difficult times and to continue to campaign for better provision of services, and respectful media representation of trans children and young people, and their families.
- Rica Paras – An Accenture Technology Senior Manager based in Paris, and had been the ASEAN LGBT Lead, spearheading collaboration between LGBT advocates from the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia. She is part of the #PrideAtAccenture Global Video campaign and a core team member of Philippines’ Friends of Lesbians and Gays (FLAG). She was also a Spokesperson and Board Member for the Philippines-based LGBT political organisation “Ladlad”, and has served as the Chairwoman of the Society of Transsexual Women of the Philippines (STRAP).
- Gina Denham – Gina is 55, married and has three daughters. She is a retired Essex Police Sergeant who worked for most of her service in Community Policing. She is currently studying Person-Centred Counselling at The University of Essex. She believes a positive mental attitude, keeping fit by running regularly, helped her physically and mentally during her transition. She volunteers for Diversity Role Models, All about Trans and Stonewall to help break down LGBTQ barriers, and challenge organisational processes that may be unconsciously biased against trans people. As a result of the challenges she faced, “Coming out” as being trans, she was motivated to form “Transpire”, an LGBTQ+ network group based in South Essex in February 2016. She aspires to the mantra is “BE the change you want to see”, in all that she does, believing that volunteering and community focused work can help to improve communities. Her talks enable those involved in Continuous Professional Development to have an understanding of some of the challenges that trans people face, and how this knowledge can support trans people to feel more included.
- Dr. Jay Stewart – ‘ I’ve been involved in the trans community since 2002. Since then, I’ve been passionate about improving the lives of trans and gender questioning people, especially young people. In 2008, I co-founded Gendered Intelligence. Gendered Intelligence is a not for profit organization that provides activities, support, and resources for the trans community as well as education, training and consultancy for organizations that are developing their trans-inclusive practices.I’m very enthusiastic about education and learning; my favourite subject is gender – there’s always more to discover. In 2013 I gained my doctorate in the Visual Cultures department at Goldsmiths College, University of London with my thesis “Trans on Telly: Popular Documentary and the Production of Transgender Knowledge”.’
- As Gendered Intelligence has grown, I have moved into a Chief Executive role, and now lead a fantastic team of 30 staff members who deliver a wide range of services. In recent years I’ve acted as an independent adviser to the Ministry of Justice review into the care and management of transgender offenders and gave oral evidence to the Trans Inquiry for the Women’s and Equalities Select Committee. I now sit on the National Transgender Advisory Board for trans prisoners with the Ministry of Justice. I also lead on a number of our major partnerships such as that with the Football Association working towards trans inclusion in football.
- Arora Ashani – Lead organiser of Non-Binary in Tech, a free conference focused on celebrating Non-Binary people in the tech space. When not speaking at conferences or fighting to make tech more inclusive she works as a developer at NET-A-PORTER. Her favourite colour is #b19cd9 and she will put the ✨emoji everywhere unless stopped!
