Just 24 hours to go before I am due to speak in London at the International Women’s Day celebration organised by Accenture. The focus for the celebration will be ‘Pioneering Women’ and is a great fit with my own First Women project. We will explore how far women have come in the last 100 years and look forward to what they will achieve in the future. Accenture has designed an agenda to inspire, encourage reflection and motivate our women to explore how they too can become pioneers.
I have been asked to speak about “First Women” and will be exploring some of the questions put to me by host and top Australian comedian Deborah Frances-White. As Deborah is something of a female pioneer in the comedic field in her own testosterone fuelled country and is about to star in her own show “How to Get Almost Anyone to Want to Sleep With You” I am sure we are promised an afternoon of sharp wit and incisive comment.
Accenture’s intention is to leave the women (and 15 men!) delegates attending “with a sense that they too are capable of incredible things in their work and personal lives” – I have a feeling they wont be disappointed.
