Speaker(s): Elise Do, Grace Olugbodi, Ana Maria Torres | To mark International Women's Day, join us for a discussion on how female entrepreneurs are using social enterprise to change the world to provide opportunities for women and tackle inequalities. Inspiring female leaders speak frankly about their journey, motivations, purpose and business and share their golden nuggets for success. The last two years have seen women speak up around the world and support each other, resulting in a sense of solidarity that is stronger than ever today. Social enterprises are providing leadership opportunities for women in the UK, India, Pakistan, and the USA. But despite this, gender inequalities still remain among social entrepreneurs. HERA (Her Equality Rights and Autonomy) and LSE team up to present a panel of leaders, entrepreneurs and experts in business who will explore the world of social enterprise and the opportunities it can present.
