Partners Room, Newcastle University Business School

coco event

Newcastle University Business School and international development charity COCO have partnered to celebrate Women in the World of Work. With the Business School’s civic values of quality, integrity and impact and its consistent commitment to equality and equal opportunities, it is a pleasure to support COCO, who will be investing in more female students and entrepreneurs than ever before, in some of the most challenging environments in East Africa. We wanted to share their stories with you and also invite some inspirational women from the North East to speak about their experiences in business.

Hear from inspirational women from across the North East to celebrate the achievements of women and girls in our local area and overseas. Women and girls are essential to economic and social development, but still have to overcome challenges to succeed. Our guest speakers will share their stories about how they became successful business women and leave you feeling inspired and motivated!

Thanks to sponsorship from the business school the event is free of charge and will close with drinks and canapes and an opportunity for you to network with other guests and of course our speakers.
