We all know diversity matters and should be a commercial imperative in every industry.
In the critical era of the advancement of women, its time for women to take their rightful place and demand (not ask) for the same opportunity, legitimacy, recognition and credit men get. Women won't get this by waiting their turn or suffering in silence. They must create opportunities where there are none and bring their folding chair to sit at the table where no extra chairs exist. Collective responsibility can only take us so far - individual responsibility for your representation (be it gender, race, sex) is critical to making diversity matter.

Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu is a New York Attorney and Solicitor Of England and Wales, an author, public speaker and a political & women’s rights activist. She teaches intersectional feminism to female refugees and asylum seekers; scrutinizes government policies; and coorganises women's marches (including Women's March London) and social campaigns. She founded Women in Leadership Publication and established She@Law to promote women & BAME leadership in the legal profession. She is also the Co-Chair of the American Bar Association Africa committee.

This talk will explore how women can make a change in and out of the workplace. Stop Talking - Start Doing!

45-minute talk, followed by opportunity for audience discussion.
This event is a collection point for The Homeless Period Southampton
