** This event is now closed to non-members. Representatives of Urbano Member companies - there are two places left at time of writing. Email Caroline to get instructions on booking a place.

Caroline Brock, Co-Founder and Director of Urbano Network and Talent Lab, will be hosting this networking lunch for our Women In Business Community which brings together female business founders, directors, managers, and other professionals who work for or run Urbano Member Companies. 

This year's theme for International Women's Day is #EmbraceEquity, where equity stands for creating a fair and equal world, something Urbano has promoted across its member community since our beginnings in Shoreditch almost 20 years ago. For us, equity also means ownership, both as company owners, which we help facilitate through opportunities for our female founders, but also owning both the problems of bias, exclusion, and prejudice, and constantly seeking solutions together to remove them from the workplace and wider society.

Event Sponsors
