Kent and Medway International Women’s Week #Girlscando

The Kent & Medway Enterprise Adviser Network (KMEAN) would like to invite you to the first ever Kent & Medway International Women’s Week taking place from 8th-12th March 2021.

This week aims to raise aspiration, motivate, and challenge stereotypical thinking of women in the world of work. KMEAN will be hosting a series of FREE ninety minute broadcasts throughout the week consisting of recorded interviews and live speakers, including many inspirational female role models sharing their stories, as well as young girls sharing their dreams for their future. Alongside the events each day, they will also be running a social media campaign through the KMEAN LinkedIn page showcasing a range of inspirational women from industry providing a range of powerful and uplifting quotes to young girls.

This interactive week will be promoted to schools and colleges encouraging them to get involved and providing a host of meaningful encounters for the students. The week will be full of positive messages that ‘Girls Can Do’!
