Barnet Council celebrates International Women's Day


Following the success of Rainbow Week at the end of February, the Barnet Council's Equalities Allies are now planning the next major event for staff – International Women’s Day (IWD), which is being celebrated on Wednesday 11 March.

There are lots of ways to get involved, with the centrepiece of the day being a panel discussion with a range of women from across the organisation, followed by some inspirational videos on this year’s theme of #EachforEqual.

Please find the full programme of events below – if you're planning on attending the panel discussion, we would ask that you please register in advance on Eventbrite.
