The National Black Women’s Network and the Government Equalities Office Joint Seminar

The National Black Women’s Network and the Government Equalities Office are hosting a seminar on women and business on Thursday 29th March at the Mailbox, One Wharfside Street, Birmingham, B1 1RD between 1:00pm – 3:00pm .

This is a chance for you to have a say in Government policy as it is being made. The issues you will be discussing include:

  • What equalities means to SMEs and micro businesses and what government can do to make them more confident in achieving minimum compliance with equality legislation – your contribution will help develop a national series of roadshows for SMEs taking place later this year
  • The IPPR report “Women and Banks: Are female customers facing discrimination” http://www.ippr.org/publications/55/8186/women-and-banks-are-female-customers-facing-discrimination   – your contribution will feed into a review for the Deputy Prime Minister on the issues raised by the report
  • Specific barriers faced by women when setting up or expanding their SMEs – your contribution will feed into the considerations of the Women’s Business Council, which is being set up by Government to provide advice on how to improve the business environment for women to maximise their success.

Due to limited capacity you must confirm your booking on a first come, first served basis to info@nbwn.org and please add full company details in your email.

Joining instructions and agenda will be sent to you once your place has been confirmed.
