About this event
This time, we’re switching up the event format to include a panel discussion with inspirational speakers from across the region, followed by an opportunity to take part in breakout peer-to-peer conversations before re-grouping to feedback and ask any questions.
Together we will:
- Discuss ways to move towards a gender equal industry sector
- Raising awareness against bias
- Question stereotypes
- Share ideas on how we can all help to create an inclusive world, in business and beyond
Chairing the panel, we have Sharon Paterson (Associate Dean at MIMA School of Art and Design at Teesside University and Associate Director of MIMA). Sharon leads the Creative Fuse North East Project for Teesside University and is currently working as part of the Tees Valley Combined Authority Culture and Visitor Economy Task Force which has been established to support the sector through the pandemic.
