Wire Wool Presents: Make Your Diversity Count: a talk by Shola Mos-Shogbamimu

We all know diversity matters and should be a commercial imperative in every industry. In the critical era of the advancement of women, its time for women to take their rightful place and demand (not ask) for the same opportunity, legitimacy, recognition and credit men get. Women won’t get this by waiting their turn or suffering in silence. They must create opportunities where there are none and bring their folding chair to sit at the table where no extra chairs exist. Collective responsibility can only take us so far – individual responsibility for your representation (be it gender, race, sex) is critical to making diversity matter.

Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu is an Attorney and Solicitor, author, public speaker and a political & women’s rights activist. She teaches intersectional feminism to female refugees and asylum seekers; scrutinizes government policies; and coorganises women’s marches and social campaigns. She founded Women in Leadership magazine and established She@Law to promote Women & BAME leadership in the legal profession.

This talk will explore how women can make a change in and out of the workplace. Stop Talking – Start Doing!

45-minute talk, followed by opportunity for audience discussion.
