MKIAC – Choose to Challenge
MKIAC are bringing together inspirational community leaders to discuss how women are using creative ways to build a more inclusive world & forge women’s equality.
This event brings inspirational community leaders and our future leaders together to discuss how women in our community are using creative ways to build a more inclusive world and forge women’s equality. We hear from multigenerational speakers from our own backyard about the everyday challenges at different levels, what we need to move forward and how we can make daily choice to challenge to call out gender bias and inequality. This event is set to the backdrop of the pandemic, where many have said that women have been asked to do the impossible and we are at a very real risk of turning the clock back on gender equality. Equally, we now have an opportunity to push for a more equal sharing of care work and more flexibility from employers. We want to unleash the potential of everyone across the country.
Date of event: 16th March 2021

Pearn Kandola – Big talk, little progress: Gender equality in organisations and how to make it a reality
There has been much talk around gender equality in organisations, but actions have been far from effective; some would argue things are getting worse…
Pearn Kandola are providing a free webinar series exploring why we are making such limited progress on gender equality and what actions we can take to make it a reality. This session will look at:
- the historical origins of gender bias;
- what we can do to address the main drivers of inequality;
- how to reduce gender-based micro-incivilities;
- why we are making such little progress on the gender pay gap;
- and how intersections of race and gender have significant implications on who is considered a suitable leader.
