Even before the event the excitement was building!
We kicked off the evening with a short video(I recommend clicking the Youtube button so you can see it in full screen)
Then Joy Kent of Chwarae Teg introduced the campaign and asked some sector leaders to give their thoughts on how the campaign might affect the various sectors.
Helen Birthwhistle of the NHS spoke about the public sector
Phil Jarrold of the WCVA spoke about the charities sector and
Kathryn Roberts of Eversheds spoke about the private sector
Before we got into the main feature of the night, pledging! Everyone was encouraged to write a pledge that contributes towards 5050by2020You can make your pledge too by visiting our website
- We couldn't agree more with Bablin, a lot of the work is needed in the lower levels of management in organisation to bring women through to board level in the first place and hopefully we'll see some pledges from organisations promoting this!
We finished the evening with a group shot of all attendees holding up their pledges
