Location: Zoom (Online Video Software)
Timings: 12pm-1pm

It is estimated that there are only 6 female CEO’s in the UKs top 100 firms and there is still a long way to go to get equality for females within the workplace. So how can we empower our female colleagues and support businesses in ensuring they have diversity within the workplace?

Following on from our recent Diversity and Inclusion events, we are pleased to have teamed up with our guest speakers to champion our female counterparts and to share tips on breaking down barriers and empowering women. We are excited to be partnering with Noha Amin and Cheryl Thompson who are our guest speakers for the event.

Chery Thompson is passionate about enabling women to be proud of who they are right now – no more waiting till tomorrow. After 15 years of successfully leading within Financial Services and striving within a male dominated environment, Cheryl has combined her learning and experiences to coach and mentor businesses on empowering women. Cheryl has helped females to realise their gift and to proudly thrive within their workplace by being the best possible version of whoever they are.

Noha Amin is an experienced Cyber Security Consultant who has been recognised for her contribution to the Tech industry and has been awarded as one of the ‘Top 30 Women in Tech in Manchester’ by Manchester Evening News. Noha relocated to the UK in 2016 to embark on the next step in her career journey and she has continued to triumph women and encourage females within the technology industry. Having had previous experience of being the only female within a male dominated environment and returning to work after maternity leave, Noha is passionate about diversity and inclusion within the workplace.
