International Women's Day 2013

March 8th each year women are celebrated world over as it is 'International Women's Day'.  At The Women's Organisation we are always keen to get involved, particularly to champion women's enterprise, and this year is no diffferent.

This 8th March The Women's Organisation are linking with Downtown Liverpool in Business to host the inaugeral 'Women in Business Awards' at Hilton Liverpool. The event will be a huge celebration of women's achievements and is a sell out!

We are also linking with the University of Liverpool to host 'Women in Business Celebration' networking evening on Thursday 14th March.  The evening will feature Masterchef the Professional's winner Claire Lara along with Victoria Brown and Jenny Radcliffe, University alumni turned successful business women. This event is also a sell out!
