Building Back Better with West Midlands Women’s Voice and The Fawcett Society: Levelling the Playing Field for Women in the Regions

Next week will see West Midlands Women’s Voice (WMWV), an established network of women dedicated to setting an agenda for economic growth and better social welfare – with the role of women central to this new political and economic forum – host their next much-anticipated remote event of 2020.
Working in partnership with The Fawcett Society, WMWV’s event will explore and discuss how women in the regions can be better included in national debate, with a focus on ‘building back better’ after the societal, economic and political impacts of Coronavirus nationwide. In particular, the esteemed panel will be looking at whether local government and Combined Authorities should have a greater role in lockdown decisions.
The panel for this exclusive event includes numerous, notable women operating within these spheres, including Sam Smethers (Chair and CEO of The Fawcett Society), Deborah Cadman OBE (Chief Executive of the West Midlands Combined Authority), Pam Smith (Chief Executive of Stockport Council) and Namywa (Singer, Songwriter and Composer whose artistry and newly established Foundation focuses on BAME women across the West Midlands).
The event is taking place at 6:45pm on Wednesday 15th July, and is guaranteed to offer great insight and debate into these incredibly topical and pressing subjects, so is definitely not one to miss! – Particularly, as you can attend from the comfort of your own home using the online Zoom platform (the event will include live captions).
Naturally, WMWV want to keep their events free to allow as many people as possible to join the conversation, however in these difficult times they would ask that you consider making a donation to help them to continue to do their work, and thank you in advance for your generosity.
