Inspiring Women - #BalanceforBetter

Friday 8th March 2019
Kings College Conference Centre

International Women's Day has been celebrated across the world since the early 1900's. Originally, its aim was to provide a forum for women to campaign for equality and women’s rights. Over time, it has evolved and now in March each year, thousands of events are held throughout the world to recognise the progress that has been made, to inspire women and to celebrate their achievements.

This conference aims to not only inspire women, but to raise the profile of issues that are central to career development for female colleagues at both a local and national level. We look forward to welcoming speakers such as Annie Wallace of Hollyoaks fame and also Miranda Krestovnikoff, Biologist, President of RSPB and well known TV presenter.

The proceeds from the conference will be donated to the Aberdeen based ‘Active Girls Committee’ for which one of our speakers Aimee Work is Chairperson. The main aim of the Active Girls Committee is to encourage and increase participation within girls and young women into sport and physical activity within Aberdeen.
