WOMEN IN BUSINESS CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
Wednesday 16 November, 10am to 2pm at the Novotel Liverpool Paddington Village Hotel
Celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week and Women’s Entrepreneurship Day with Pink Link as we bring together leading female entrepreneurs to connect and see how we can make a difference. As part of GEW2022 we are taking this opportunity to hear from some female initiatives that are happening in Liverpool.
We welcome those women in business that want to make a difference and can see that by collaborating we can make an impact on the growth of female entrepreneurship.
One of the themes from GEW2022 is GEW Ecosystems which aims to inspire communities to collaborate and share their networks and markets to help rising startups thrive. This theme celebrates the shared challenges and triumphs of entrepreneurial communities and hubs around the world.
With this theme in mind our first guest speaker is the multi award-winning Dr Natalie Kenny, founder of BioGrad. She will share her business journey as a woman in STEM and her Liverpool based female community to aid women in business.
We will also be welcoming Lucy Johnson, Philanthropy Manager of The Prince’s Trust who will explain how the Women Supporting Women campaign assist young women from disadvantaged backgrounds on their entrepreneurial journey.
