Women Inspired 2019


Collective action and shared responsibility for driving a gender-balanced world is key. International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women - while also marking a call to action for accelerating gender balance.

To celebrate International Women’s Day and to mark our 10th Anniversary year, we launhed our first ever ‘Women Inspired’ Gala Lunch at the EICC ‪on Friday 8th March‬.
Our Women Inspired event brought together some of the most inspiring women from Business, Sport and Community in Scotland and the World.

This year, Dame Ann Gloag OBE joined us to share a unique insight into her Entrepreneurial Journey as well as share her passion for making a difference through her philanthropic work around the world.

We also heard from Cabinet Secretary for Communities and Local Government, Aileen Campbell MSP and some of our amazing Street Soccer Scotland Women’s Team players.
Guests enjoyed a VIP drinks reception, 2 course meal and the chance to win a range of fantastic prizes while raising funds to support the work of  Street Soccer Scotland and our Women’s Street 45 programme.

To finish the day off, we were joined by TV star, entrepreneur and DJ Gok Wan who hosted a fantastic closing party DJ set!
