It’s a M.A.D. (Making a Difference) World Online Seminar

8th March 2019 - 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PST

Join us this International Women’s Day to explore the latest thinking about the empowerment of women as leaders, why there is still a critical need to close the global gender gap and how women are agents of change.

The global theme for International Women’s Day this year is #balanceforbetter. Balance is not a women’s issue, it’s a business issue. The race is on for the gender-balanced boardroom, a gender-balanced government, gender-balanced media coverage and more gender-balance in wealth. Gender balance is essential for economies and communities to thrive.

This online seminar will be led by Dr Sam Collins, Founder and CEO of Aspire, named ‘One of the Top 200 Women to Impact Business and Industry’ by Her Majesty, the Queen and ‘A Woman Shaping the World’ by CNN. Award-winning gender diversity expert, social entrepreneur, key note speaker, coach and internationally bestselling author, Dr Collins is a leading global voice on change for workplaces, organizational culture and community impact.

Learn how organizations that focus on a triple bottom line of profits, people and planet will be the sole survivors and innovators of the future and how we as individuals can change the world.

Connect and make a difference with like-minded women from across the corporate, not-for-profit and entrepreneurial worlds.

  • Move forward on your aspirations for yourself, the advancement of women and making a difference in your community and world.
  • Explore the challenges and obstacles you face and gain ways to overcome them.
  • Receive support, mentoring and encouragement from a like-minded network making a difference to themselves and others.
  • Gain new ideas, contacts and thinking.
  • Be inspired and uplifted by others' goals and aspirations.
  • Network, commit to action and ongoing sustainability.

Please also note that because we have received so many great questions about the event, Dr Collins has decided to extend the event to include a ‘question and answer’ session at the end. So if you would like to ask questions directly about your life, work and world aspirations and challenges, please stay on after the official finish time.

No cost, complimentary event for International Women's Day

12pm PST | 8pm UK

“Thank you for an amazing webcast. You're very inspiring, fun & easy to relate to and your enthusiasm and energy is contagious. It was an excellent presentation, which taught me a lot, but it was also the feeling that, as a career woman, you're not alone and don't have to feel uncomfortable about wanting more in life. It's good not to care so much about what the world thinks. Usually I have to tone down my intelligence so they don't feel intimidated so it was amazing just embracing being a M.A.D. woman.”
