Entrepreneurship … A Gendered Experience?
Does the gender of an individual have any impact on their ability to pursue entrepreneurship or is it a level playing field?

The University of Liverpool, along with The Women’s Organisation and RISE Liverpool, are delighted to invite you to join a panel of entrepreneurs and campaigners as we explore, using real life experiences, whether gender makes any difference and if perceived bias exists.

Taking place on Tuesday 26th November in the Council Chambers at Liverpool Town Hall, doors will open at 5pm and there will be opportunity to meet other guests, and continue the discussion, after the panel session.

The prestigious panel will include:

• Linda Donnelly – Current University of Liverpool student and founder of Naturally Divine, an organic and responsibly sourced skin and hair care company that seeks to support vulnerable members of society and combat poverty.

• Anna Heyes (BSc Hons) Combined Honours, 2004) – Award winning business woman leading the independent PR and marketing consultancy Active Profile.

• Simone Roche MBE – CEO and founder of Northern Power Women, a campaign to accelerate diversity in the North of England.

• James Yu (BA Hons Business Economics, 2013)– Along with his sister, James is the Founder of Wicker Wings, a luxury handbag brand that uses traditional handwoven methods and sustainable materials inspired by their grandmother who made wicker baskets for a living in China. Wicker Wings has been featured in a long list of publications, including Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and The Times.

• Bernie Cox – Training Coordinator at The Women’s Organisation, Bernie will host the event.

Tickets for you and your guests are free but must be booked in advance.
