Wednesday 8th March will see us celebrate all the wonderful things women have done, by marking International Women’s Day. Manchester landmark rooftop bar and restaurant 20 Stories is inviting guests to join them for their annual International Women’s Day business breakfast and Q&A, which will be celebrating the fantastic and influential women of Manchester .
The event will also raise funds for Manchester Women’s Aid, part of The Pankhurst Trust, who support women to challenge gender inequality and ensure those suffering from domestic violence are provided with the support they need.
International Women’s Day seeks to celebrate women’s achievements and raise awareness about discrimination, encouraging the public to take action to drive gender parity. This year’s theme is ‘Embrace Equity‘, with the website stating: “Forging gender equity isn’t limited to women solely fighting the good fight. Allies are incredibly important for the social, economic, cultural, and political advancement of women.”
The panel at 20 Stories will be made up of a number of influential Mancunians, all who have forged their own pathway across different sectors. This includes Founder of Martyn’s Law, campaigner and educational speaker Figen Murray OBE, Head of Premium Sales at Co-op Live Becci Thomson, and Joint Artistic Director at Royal Exchange Theatre Bryony Shanahan.
The discussion will be chaired by Manchester PR company Roland Dransfield CEO, Lisa Morton, discussing this year’s IWD theme of #EmbraceEquity.
Tickets which are priced at £25 will include a panel discussion and a breakfast buffet of hot sandwiches, pastries, fruit and a selection of tea and coffee.
Tickets can be purchased here.
