Women’s Network runs week of activities for International Women’s Day

LBR’s Women’s Network celebrated International Women’s Day with a week’s worth of activities and events for everyone across the business.

The theme for this year’s International Women’s Day is #EachforEqual which inspired LBRers to hold important conversations about gender equality in the workplace.

Events included a film screening of Nigerian writer and speaker Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s TED Talk: ‘We should all be feminists’, a round table discussion about the importance of intersectional feminism and a drop-in breakfast session which asked questions such as ‘Why do we need a Women’s Network?’ and ‘What more can we do to support women in the business?’

The week concluded with an International Women’s Day quiz which featured rounds on women in literature, politics and pop culture as well as things women did that men took the credit for, and a very competitive crisp-tasting round! The quiz was in aid of women’s domestic abuse charity Refuge, with over £230 raised for the charity.
