Join our panel of amazing women at this friendly and welcoming morning of discussion, workshops and conversation.

International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The theme for International Women’s Day 2021 is ‘Choose To Challenge’. A challenged world is an alert world. And from challenge comes change.

According to the last census, 58% of carers are women so choose to challenge with Carers Leeds at our online event on 08 March at 10:30am. We’re hosting a morning of discussion, workshops and conversation. We will be joined by panellists sharing their personal perspective on the theme of challenge. Our workshops will provide smaller spaces for us to connect and share. A welcoming Zoom morning celebrating women, female carers are invited join in as much or little as you like. You can ask questions, take a moment for yourself and connect with others.
