Empowering Women: Edwina Dunn and Cathy Newman in Conversation with Charly Cox

Join Edwina Dunn and Cathy Newman in the run-up to International Women's Day, to discuss ways in which we can empower future generations of women, chaired by Charly Cox.
 
In When She's in the Room, Edwina Dunn reveals how unlocking women's potential can change the course of busines, economies and communities for the better. Utilising ground-breaking data, and surveys with hundreds of thousands of women, Edwina provides overwhelming evidence that empowering women is essential for solving the world's greatest challenges - and this is her actionable roadmap on how we can do this.
 
Combining riveting stories of some of the world's most influential female leaders with new data and research, Edwina issues a call for a revolution of values that starts within each of us. When She's in the Room outlines concrete strategies women and allies can implement - at work, at home, and in our communities - to unleash the untapped potential of women. It is an essential addition to the conversation around gender equality, and a call for a more equitable world.
 
In The Ladder, Cathy Newman brings together discussions between women – about work, love, growth, challenge, the big decisions and the stories of their lives.
 
Offering inspiration and wise counsel from some of the world’s most acclaimed and influential women, this book is an insight and a trove of solidarity, turning over ideas of change, anger, illness, imposter syndrome, self-knowledge, purpose, how to not panic in a crisis and how to stop worrying you’re boring when there isn’t one.
 
Amidst these pages are discussions with women who have achieved extraordinary things in their fields and pursuits, from politicians like Nicola Sturgeon and Angela Rayner to scientists like Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell, activists like Rosamund Kissi-Debrah, film-makers like Waad Al-Kateab, religious leaders like Rose Hudson-Wilkin and broadcasters like Joan Bakewell.
 
Books will be available to purchase on the night. There will be a book signing following the discussion. Join us from 18:00 for a welcome drink!
