To celebrate International Women’s Day I was part of an incredible team running a Women in Media Conference over the 4th and 5th March in Manchester.
The weekend was full to bursting with inspirational speakers, panels, and workshops. There was something for everyone — covering print media, broadcasting, digital media and even, acting and presenting. It was amazing to watch a group of women be confident and speak out with incredible questions and anecdotes of their own experience.
From local panels celebrating ‘Our Manchester Women’ to a keynote from BBC Breakfast’s Steph McGovern the main hall was full of girl power, a theme that ran throughout the conference. It was a wonderful to hear the feedback of women feeling they could talk confidently in a supportive environment on a range of topics and issues across the media.
It was an incredible conference to be a part of, working with a fabulous team of women equally enthusiastic and supportive of one another. To check out the event, see the article I wrote for the Mancunion here, or head to our website.
