I am contacting you as a supporter of the Inspiring Women Forum. Here is a message from Kate Stephenson
” How many times have you attended an event with an all male line up of speakers? I am not suggesting that the male speakers are not excellent at what they do, but I am keen to ensure fair representation at events.
Due to the nature of the subject and the connections within the organising committee, The Global Manufacturing Festival did have an all male line up (10 men in total).
Inspiring Women are now supporting a Women in Manufacturing session, which takes place on the morning of the Conference and Trade Show. Details are attached. ”
The GMF itself is free to attend, and with over 1000 delegates expected, its also an excellent networking opportunity.
Can I ask you please to circulate the attached flyer, and encourage people to attend the GMF and support the Women in Manufacturing session? I’m keen to give the speakers a good audience, promote women in manufacturing/engineering and show that having this session has benefited the festival as a whole.
Thank you for your support and I hope to see you on the 25th June.
