Supporting the 2022 International Women’s Day theme #breakthebias, our March CAKE event will explore work that moves towards gender equality.
We’re excited to be delivering this CAKE event in person at Middlesbrough Town Hall.
With a focus on celebrating women’s creative enterprise, the event will include a panel discussion with inspirational speakers, with an opportunity to ask any questions to the panel. This will then be followed by an opportunity to network with like-minded peers.
Together we will:
