The Festival of Place is back with Gender Equal Cities: three digital power-lunches on 7, 8 and 9 June with an amazing line-up of speakers who will explain how and why creating gender equal places benefits everyone.
The event is created to arm professionals with the information they need to make the compelling case for gender equal development with data, case studies and connections to make them happen, so they can learn, be inspired and drive change.
Learn how to make an unarguable case for equity
7-9 June from 12-2:30pm
Speakers include Dr. Kate Pickett, an epidemiologist whose work makes the link between inequality and the health, social cohesion, prosperity and self-worth of everyone in society, rich and poor alike.
