With the World Economic Forum’s 2017 Global Gender Gap Report findings telling us that gender parity is over 200 years away – and with global activism for women’s equality fuelled by movements like #MeToo, #TimesUp – there is a strong global momentum striving for gender parity.

Join us at Kellogg College on International Women’s Day as we hear from two women who will talk about gender parity in the workplace, sharing their own experiences and exploring what needs to be done to achieve equality across all industries, at all levels, and in all professions.

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town is Shadow Deputy Leader of the House of Lords and shadow Brexit minister.

Mary Every was a codebreaker at Bletchley Park, working on Japanese air codes during the Second World War.

This event is free and open to all. No booking is required. Refreshments will be served from 17:00, the talk will begin at 17:30.
