FASHION, POLITICS AND EMPOWERMENT WORKSHOP

Sat, 23 of March 2019
1.30pm- 4.00pm

Push PR Ltd, Morris Place, Finsbury Park, London N4 3JG

Confused by what on earth is happening in the ever-shifting quicksand of UK, EU and Global Politics; panicked by Brexit anxiety and what this means for you and your career; sick of feeling undermined and overlooked? Want to smash the glass ceiling; want to understand what politicians are saying and how this will affect you and what you can do about it?

Our Fashion Roundtable workshop will cover fashion, sustainability and policy, Brexit and our work on A Fashionista's Guide to Politics, as well as worker's rights, women's rights, decoding the BAME and women's pay gaps and define what these mean for you, want to stand out in public life, as well as how you ensure you are heard, understood, seen and valued, then this workshop is for you.

Led by CEO and Founder of Fashion Roundtable Tamara Cincik and our EU Expert Eszter Kantor (coming over from Brussels where she works on EU policy), this workshops aims to answer these questions.
