For the past five years, Lord and Lady Popat have hosted an IWD showcase specifically to highlight the voices of diverse women. It is our privilege to be able to curate this event.


Due to the Covid pandemic and parliamentary streaming restrictions, we concluded that hosting this event virtually again this year was the right thing to do for maximum reach and impact. Our heartfelt thanks to our speakers for prioritising this platform in what we know are busy lives for all.


We have deliberately included a diverse set of female and male voices from grassroots changemakers to established business leaders across sectors from finance to education themes including menopause, sexual violence, climate finance, female investment and suicide prevention.


Join us to hear five minute bite-sized pieces of inspiration from each of our acclaimed speakers. Follow the conversation at: #BreakTheBias #UKParliamentIWD
