International Women's Day

International Women’s Day

On Wednesday 8th of March, Hope St Xchange hosted a conference celebrating the 108th International Women’s Day. The day celebrated the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women in the region. Attended by over 100 people, the day was a huge success and a great way to launch Hope Street Xchange’s events programme. We heard from some truly inspiring speakers, sharing their stories, experiences and paving the way for women in business as a whole.

The event was organised by:

Jeni Banks, Managing Director, The Mussel Club

Louise Kennedy, Managing Director, Oculus HR

Cheryl Holmstrom, Enterprise & Innovation, University of Sunderland

Sharon MacArthur, Owner, RedHandbag
