Epic International Women's Day
We had the privilege of being invited to an International Women’s Day event at the Epic Centre on 8th of March on behalf of BAE Systems. We heard many women talking about their journey through life. A very inspirational woman spoke about her journey from being a hairdresser to becoming an entrepreneur and starting her own make up brand. We listened while another spoke about her life struggles following her husband’s stroke and their life together dealing with all of the challenges she faced afterwards in order to get where she is now. Both these inspirational women, and many more, spoke at this event, all showing how strong, brave and independent women are. Two of the women came from the RAF and told us how as women engineers they are treated the same as the men with no particular difficulties during their work lives due to their gender.
