What’s On: International Women’s Day 2023

It’s almost that time of year again! International Women’s Day 2023 is fast approaching so we at Millfields Trust wanted to take the opportunity to share and celebrate all of the amazing events that will be happening on or around the 8th of March in Plymouth. As usual, we will be hosting a networking event with Social Enterprise Mark CIC, more details on that below.

Following the success of the previous women’s networking events run by leading Plymouth social enterprises Millfields Trust and Social Enterprise Mark CIC, we are delighted to announce we will be running the event again on 8th March to celebrate International Women’s Day. Come along to connect with fellow local businesswomen and hear from inspirational female speakers.

International Women’s Day Plymouth 2023

8th March at the Crowne Plaza will see a friendly network of women from all over the city and all over the world joining together to show that Plymouth truly is a global city.

The theme of this year’s IWD is Embrace Equity, everyone everywhere! Help us to get as many countries from all over the world represented in the same room.

Network, have fun, make connections and hear from some of Plymouth’s most impressive and progressive women in the fields of sport, combatting violence against women and girls, equality, diversity, community, The Royal Navy, health and politics.

Everyone is welcome! Please spread the word. Tickets cover teas and coffees and a light lunch.

We want as many women to attend this event as possible and we also know that sometimes the cost of the ticket may mean some people can’t come to days like these. So, this time, we are selling PAY IT FORWARD tickets that you can pop in the pot for someone else to use.

So join us, the Lord Mayor, the Head of HMS Raleigh and many others for a day of celebration, discussion, ideas and innovation. Get your tickets HERE
