WOMEN IN BUSINESS RECEPTION
I had the privilege to co-host the Women in Business Reception evening with my colleague Rachel Reeves MP. It was a fantastic, packed and energised evening, and I was surrounded by brilliant and talented women entrepreneurs.
Women-led SMEs contribute around £85 billion to the UK economy. That’s why Labour wants to put women at the heart of our economic recovery – to lift women up, not hold them back. I would like to thank Bloomberg for hosting this evening and all the inspiring women who attended and helped us mark this day.
POTHOHAR IWD EVENT
I also took part in an event Bhosted by the Pothohar Association UK. I was joined by an incredible panel of women who talked about their work in the fields of poetry, journalism, the military and more.
