Postponed: Breaking the Silence: Women, Leadership, and #MeToo

Postponed: Breaking the Silence: Women, Leadership, and #MeToo
Date
8 March 2018, 6.30pm - 9.00pm
Venue
Camden Centre, Judd St, Kings Cross, London WC1H 9JE
Description

Regretfully we have decided to postpone the Breaking the Silence event scheduled for Thursday 8 March. Although we are all eager to honour the achievement of these women on International Women's Day, that has proven impossible during the industrial action. We will therefore be rescheduling the event, as we remain committed to celebrating our Leading Women, and to discussing the important issues of women, leadership, and #MeToo that our Breaking the Silence event intends to address.  We will reconvene the panel at a later date. With sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused.


This panel will discuss the challenges facing women in leadership roles, particularly in light of the issues of sexual harassment and assault raised by the #MeToo campaign. 


This event will be part of the University of London’s Leading Women campaign, commemorating the 150th anniversary of women gaining admission to university study in the UK.
