60 women gathered for International Women’s Day

Zonta Club London II hosted a breakfast for 60  women to celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8th. There were 4 speakers: Zlatina Loudjeva from PwC (co-sponsors); Rhian Sherrington, founder of Women in Sustainability; Jos Dirkx, founder of Girls & Football SA; and Charmian Love, an Oxford University lecturer and co-founder of B Lab UK.
Themes discussed included the importance of investing in women to business success and the well-being of society – women should not have to choose between work and child-rearing; the necessity of good role models for boys and girls; coping with adversity; engaging men in the right conversation about balance, gender equality and sustainability – that starts at home and continues in school. In the current climate we should recognize that there is feminine and masculine in all of us and it should not become toxic for either sex. Everyone was given a yellow Zonta rose!
