In this moment of rising populism and Brexit, women’s rights are under threat but hear this: women are rising.

Our Women and Leadership day will discuss, explore and celebrate the incredible achievements women have made in politics, arts, culture and academia.

But what’s next?

Join speakers including Dr Farah Karim-Cooper (Shakespeare’s Globe), Claire Van Kampen, Morgan Lloyd Malcom, Professor Liz Shafer (Royal Holloway), Dr Sumi Madhok (LSE), Wisome Pinnock, Dr Will Tosh (Shakespeare’s Globe), Baroness Kingsmill CBE, Rachel Reeves, Stella Kanu and Gillian Woods (Birkbeck) as they discuss women in history, their own experiences in leadership roles, the pay gap, ‘likeability’ and what kind of leadership do women or ‘should’ women cultivate?
