Women make up 51% of the UK population and 47% of those active in the labour market, but there is much untapped potential – women continue to be underrepresented in terms of participation in enterprise, with men twice as likely to start a business as women.
EYP’s latest event will be a great opportunity for our women members to learn more about addressing these issues by hearing from leading women from a variety of fields – government, large business and women's business networks.
Confirmed speakers include:
* Her Majesty's Treasury Minister Angela Eagle
* Brenda Joseph, Senior Legal Counsel for UK/Irl and Nordics, Apple UK
* Sally Russell, Founder, Netmums
* Marilise Saghbini, Make Your Mark (Women’s Enterprise Ambassador Network)
* Maxine Benson and Karen Gill, Everywoman
* Catherine Bennett, Channel Programmes Manager, Apple UK
There will also be an opportunity to ask questions during a Q&A session with the speakers, and drinks and canapés will follow.
The event will be held at the headquarters of Apple, Hanover St (just behind Apple Store on Regent St), London.
