Leadership Month – Celebrating International Women’s Day
We are delighted to be able to celebrate International Women’s Day in person this year with our ‘Inspiring Women in Business’ event at Cheltenham Ladies College celebrating excellence in business and best practice. This event is open to both male and female business people as we believe life and the work place should be a balanced environment with diversity and inclusion.
The theme of International Women’s Day 2022 is #BreakTheBias, a global call to arms to tackle discrimination, celebrate our differences and forge an equal future. Join us on the 8th March and hear from inspirational, motivational women in business who will share their journeys, COVID-19 experiences and their future plans.
We hope you will join us to be inspired and motivated, enjoy a light lunch and have the opportunity to connect with colleagues.
Join us and meet some inspirational, motivating people in business who care
about diversity, inclusion and equality
Hear from our inspiring speakers:
- Eve Jardine-Young – Principal Cheltenham Ladies College
Eve Jardine-Young has been Principal of Cheltenham Ladies’ College since 2011, having worked in the independent sector for over 25 years, including at Radley College (Oxfordshire), Blundell’s School (Devon) and Epsom College (Surrey). She had held academic and pastoral roles in both single sex and co-educational schools, having originally worked in industry after graduating from Cambridge University in Engineering Science, sponsored by Arup. Eve has spoken on themes relating to education in Washington, London, Prague and Hong Kong, and is deeply committed to environmental initiatives, social enterprise, microfinance and development, having been born and raised in Malawi. She is Chair of the World Leading Schools Association (WLSA) and a Deputy Lord Lieutenant for Gloucestershire, as well as having an involvement with the Barnwood Trust, whose work supports marginalised and vulnerable adults in leading more independent lives.
- Janis Sinton – Managing Director TasteTech
Janis and her husband, Roger, founded TasteTech together in 1992 when Roger identified a niche in the food flavourings and ingredients market for microencapsulation technology. It became the foundation of a business plan which saw them build a successful company together until Roger’s sudden death in 2007. Building on her deep understanding of the business, Janis took over the reins as managing director and set herself and the TasteTech team a challenging goal: to double the size, turnover and profitability of the company within five years. They not only reached but exceeded that target and the team are now looking to increase turnover to £12m and build a bespoke new factory by 2024. After such leadership, it was no surprise to us that in November 2012, Janis was awarded The NatWest Everywoman Hera Award for the most inspirational woman running a business that has been trading for 12 years or more. Today, Janis continues to lead the growth of this outstanding independent family-owned business.
- Nicola Whiting – Best selling author; engaging public speaker and award winning mentor
Nicola Whiting is Co-Owner of Titania Group, Worcestershire’s Commissioner for the UK Cyber Science & Innovation Audit, and an award-winning business mentor for initiatives such as BetaDen, NCSC, DCMS, Women in Business and Circle2Success. She is listed in SC Magazine’s Top 20 most influential women working in cyber security. Neurodivergent, she advocates from experience for diversity in all forms, believing it will lead to broader and ultimately better solutions to our most pressing issues – in cyber security, business, and in life. There is nothing Nicola loves more than sharing her insight into her true passions – building inclusive cultures, accelerating business growth and cyber security strategy.
- Alice Roizer – Early Career Group Team Lead, L3Harris Technologies
Alice joined L3Harris back in 2016 as part of their Engineering Graduate Scheme and has since risen through the ranks to become the Early Career Group Team Lead for their Intelligence and Cyber International – EMEA business. Based at L3Harris’ Spectra House office in Tewkesbury, Alice works closely with younger generations to help shape their career paths and achieve their personal goals. A large part of this involves championing regular Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) outreach initiatives by visiting, collaborating with, and speaking at schools and colleges within the local community. A passionate advocate for raising awareness of STEM roles and career opportunities, Alice draws upon her own experiences working within defence – a largely male-orientated industry – to inspire young women to challenge the conventions of gender bias and pursue such exciting career paths as engineering and manufacturing.
