Imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. A world that’s diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women’s equality. Collectively we can all #InspireInclusion.
Celebrate women’s achievement. Raise awareness about discrimination. Take action to drive gender parity.
International Women’s Day (IWD) belongs to everyone, everywhere. Inclusion means all IWD action is valid.
Guest Speakers: Katherine Vass from the Women In Business Networking and Melissa Dizon from Martello Building Consultancy.
About Katherine Vass:
Katherine, a former Londoner, relocated to Kent in 2020 during the pandemic. With a background in b2b media sales, encompassing video and content production as well as syndication, she has worked for large businesses including Getty Images and ITN Productions. Presently, she operates as a consultant in b2b media and publishing.
Amidst the COVID-induced remote work landscape, Katherine realised the absence of professional female networking opportunities in Kent. In response, she invested in a national franchise for the Women in Business Network, acquiring ownership of the Kent territory.
In 2023, she initiated groups in Kings Hill, Canterbury, and Thanet, with plans underway for additional launches in New Ash Green, Westerham, and Folkestone later this year.
Recognizing the significance of personal and professional development, Katherine champions the Women in Business Network as an avenue for remarkable women to forge valuable connections, engage in a supportive ecosystem, and draw inspiration from one another.
“Establishing a business comes with its challenges, and it’s crucial to have platforms where we can exchange ideas, learn, and cultivate trusted relationships in an environment that fosters growth,” she affirms.
