Event Details

After a successful series one we continue our disability, accessibility and inclusion discussions on our Great change; Great Women series 2 webinar starting on June 3rd 2021.

We have some really great speakers who will discuss topics ranging on the benefits of menopause networks, digital accessibility, innovative coaching within education and how disability is now firmly on the board agenda of over 500 of the world’s most famous organisations. It promises to be thought- provoking and insightful as always and we invite all our attendees to ask any burning questions towards the end of each session in the Q&A.
