Celebrating Yorkshire’s Inspirational Women on International Women’s Day


I am delighted to invite you to the Forward Ladies Celebration of International Women’s Day on the 6th of March.

This exciting event will feature personal insights from three very successful local Yorkshire women in business: Baroness FarsiTricia Stewart and Charlotte Armitage, who are all on different stages of their incredibly inspiring journeys.

We could spend the whole day talking about the challenges women still face today but you’ve heard them all before so we won’t be doing that. Instead, come along to our International Women’s Day to hear how these women did something to overcome their challenges.

We are all about  #makingchangehappen. Join us to create change in your life and business.  The event is being held on 6th of March from 12:00 – 14:30 at the Leeds Club, 3 Albion Place LS1 6JL, Leeds. 

This will be an opportunity to meet and network with women from a range of backgrounds who share an interest in supporting other women in business.
