One FULL Day of Crafting YOUR Custom Plan For Your Ideal Career and Life From Now
You won’t be attending “just another virtual meeting”.
I’ll show you how to discover where your Passion, Mission, Professionalism and Purpose collide. Let’s spend a day together and we’ll consider what else you could do (at the same time as what you’re currently doing) to achieve more satisfaction at work and at home, and take action on some of your ideas?
Come and meet and learn from other career women just like you who’ve taken BIG leaps of faith (before they were ready but they did it anyway).
My events always attract incredible, experienced corporate career women just like you who’ve been (and some still are) where you are today. We share generously our experience, wisdom, missteps and lessons so you can fast track yourself.
Take some time for yourself, give yourself the gift of some focus on YOU for a change. Change happens when you decide to do things differently.

White folks – it has always been and will continue to be our job to dismantle the systems of oppression that entrap our Black community members. Many of us are asking “What can I do?”, “How can I help?”, or waiting for a checklist that will magically absolve us of our inherent racism. By treating Allyship as a practice of action and un-learning and not a “destination”, we can begin to effectively dismantle these deeply harmful and insidious systems of oppression.
Relying on our Black friends and family to educate us on these topics is violent and destructive. Racism and White Supremacy aren’t new; they are largely studied systems whose resources are plentiful and easily accessible.
This bi-weekly study group is intended to provide a space for White folks and non-Black PoC to learn, discuss, and ask questions about topics relating to Anti-Racism without having to rely on our Black community members to educate us and provide us with emotional comfort. Some topics we will tackle together include White Fragility, Intersectional Social Justice, Discomfort, Activism Burnout and Fatigue, and more. All genders are welcome to study.
Join us for "Lessons from four years of the Women in Finance Charter", Chaired by Julia Gillard, Chair of the Global Institute for Women's Leadership and Former Prime
In 2016, HM Treasury launched the “Women in Finance Charter”, with the aim of delivering the UK government’s aspiration to see gender balance at all levels across financial services firms. The charter’s membership criteria includes the requirement for an executive responsible for gender diversity and inclusion, the setting of internal targets for gender diversity in senior management, publishing progress, and an intention to amend any gender pay gaps found.
Four years on, what has been its impact, and where do we go from here?
Join the Global Institute for Women’s Leadership at King’s College London and Women in Banking and Finance for a panel event to discuss these issues and more.

Sign up today, choose your distance and join for £5 per person. We are also encouraging everyone who takes part to raise a target amount of £25 in sponsorship, which could help to cover the cost of an hour’s call with our gynae nurse specialist – but if you manage to raise above and beyond this, then we can continue to reach more and more people.
Naturally many of us will Go Red when doing exercise yet when it comes to gynae health, too many people are Going Red for the wrong reasons like abnormal bleeding. This needs to change and with your support it can.
By taking part in the Go Red Run you can help encourage open and honest conversations so everyone knows their normal and gets bleeding checked, all whilst raising funds for medical research into early detection, screening and prevention as well as our Ask Eve service, which provides key information about signs, symptoms and risk factors around gynae cancers.
Once you’ve registered, we’ll be in touch with your online sports pack to help get your fundraising underway, as well as the link to our Strava group so you can track your progress and meet other participants!
You’ll also receive a bib number to wear on 13th as well as suggested start times. Everyone who then completes their run, walk or jog will be sent a medal* for their amazing effort!
Thank you so much for your support – and if you have any queries please do not hesitate to get in touch either by emailing [email protected] or by calling 020 7605 0100.

Join us for this webinar and hear from
The Covid-19 crisis has fundamentally changed the way we work. In the space of just a few months, a vast proportion of the UK workforce has gone from daily commutes and coordinating a balance between work time and home commitments, to potentially having the freedom and flexibility to blend their work and home lives for better productivity in both. This rapid take-up has been an intensive stress-test for management practices that will be needed if flexible working becomes more normalised post Covid-19.
In this webinar, Emma Stewart MBE, co-founder of Timewise Foundation, provides practical insights on how organisations and managers can create a more systemic, inclusive and gender-balanced approach to flexible working.
