The Women in Business Task Group runs invite-only quarterly events for Charter signatories. At these events, we bring signatories together with subject matter experts to discuss one of the Charter goals. If you've successfully applied to sign the Charter, look out for your invitation to our next event.
On the 7th March 2020, we celebrated International Womens Day at Bristol City Hall, an event organised by Bristol Womens Voice - we hosted a panel, discussing the topics of how to navigate the oppurtunities and challenges facing Women in Business today. With fabulous guest speakers from a range of different careers with paths you might not have expected!

On 4 October 2019, Charter signatories were hosted by OVO Energy and we shared ideas and thoughts on closing the gender pay gap. Our expert speakers were Charley Maher and Zara Nanu.
Our first event was on 27 June, focused on the Charter goal of implementing work practices that are non-discriminatory towards women and free from bias. The event was kindly hosted by Founding Signatory Burges Salmon.

The Women in Business Charter was launched at an event at Bristol City Hall on 26th March 2019. The Founding Signatories inspired us by sharing the reasons they had signed the Charter, what action they had already taken towards gender equality and the progress they planned to make in future.
