“We are determined to break down barriers to true equality and see women succeed and thrive in their careers.”

The conference is open to all and the WIEA Group are hoping that the agenda will attract a diverse audience from across the sector, regardless of gender to help champion and support equality within the workplace.

    If this were the other way around it would be "sexist"!. I might attend and claim discrimination.

    Why? Men are welcome to attend. I will be.
    Now, why don’t you show everyone what a ‘real man’ you are and name yourself- rather than this pathetic nonsense hidden behind a handle?


    Sorry but you are right
    If I set up a men in EA event would be called sexist even If I said men were welcome
    I will not be attending this event I do not see the point or value in it

    Kristjan Byfield

    Events exploring the challenges faced by any demographic, be that based on sex, sexuality, religion, ethnicity, disability, etc is not discriminatory if open to all.
    That you may fall in to the applicable category and not need help or guidance does not mean others don’t.
    Likewise, if you’re an owner or senior manager in any business, if you’re not attempting to educate and inform yourselves on challenges you may not consider or understand- then it’s your business that will suffer. I, for one, want by businesses to encompass and empower anyone who comes to work with me. For that reason I’m glad there are events like this as well as others organised by the likes of Freehold the industry lgbtq organisation
