Events galore for IWD

Tuesday 07 March 2023


A number of events have been planned across the Bailiwick to mark International Women's Day 2023, with a few highlighted here.

Schools, businesses, and community organisations, have all arranged for guest speakers or debates on topics which affect women and girls.

The Ladies' College will launch its IWD focus with a panel discussion tonight (7 March) exploring "the interaction between gender inequality and the digital world".  

Chaired by the Lieutenant Governor, the panel will discuss the challenges and opportunities that girls face in navigating digital spaces.  

This event starts at 18:00 tonight and is open to the public with opportunities for questions from the floor. Places can be reserved HERE.

Tomorrow morning students from Les Beaucamps High and other schools will join with around 100 women at St Pierre Park Hotel to celebrate IWD with the Soroptimists International of Guernsey.

The breakfast briefing will see motivational speaker Tanya Scholtz discuss her accountancy work and her passion for rugby and other sports.

Express will be meeting with pupils from Les Beaucamps after the briefing to discuss what inspiration they derived from the event.
