International Women’s Day 2024 – #InspireInclusion

£35.00 – £250.00
March 8 at 11:30 AM- 3:00 PM

Sponsored By AESSEAL

We are pleased to once again be joining millions of other women and men, world-wide celebrating the massive contribution that women make to our lives, in business, and the community. Please join us on Friday 8th March 2024, at Wentworth Woodhouse for a day to reflect, share and be inspired by peoples’ personal journeys.


IWD 2024 campaign theme: #InspireInclusion

When we inspire others to understand and value women’s inclusion, we forge a better world.

And when women themselves are inspired to be included, there’s a sense of belonging, relevance, and empowerment.

The aim of the IWD 2024 #InspireInclusion campaign is to collectively forge a more inclusive world for women.

We are delighted to announce the host of the event is the Chamber’s CEO, Carrie Sudbury and we have a stellar panel of guests to answer a Q & A session as well as great line up of speakers which include:

Since taking on the role she has established a successful trading company, and launched the Wentworth Woodhouse Masterplan “A New Life” which details the £130 million regeneration programme for the site. She has since successfully raised and managed over £30m worth of restoration and repair at the site.

Sarah joined the National Lottery Heritage Fund Northern Committee, where she is part of the team making decisions on grant requests between £250,000 and £5million.

Having grown up seeing lots of inequalities in society, I am passionate about championing inclusive football, especially enabling women and girls to play football at all levels of the football pyramid. Football is our national sport, and we should give everyone, regardless of their background, the opportunity to complete on a level playing field.
