Women in Dev is a women-led, women-focused international development conference which will be held at the County Hall, London,
on March 5th, 2020. In the run up to International Women’s Day, we will bring together women from across the development arena and provide a platform for women-led conversations around some of the most significant challenges of our time, fostering an inclusive atmosphere in which to learn, grow, inspire and be inspired.
Women in Dev aims to harness the power of collective knowledge and passion to ignite solutions-based conversations around pressing concerns including time poverty, institutional and systemic inequality, working in humanitarian settings and engaging unlikely allies.
Women in Dev has been developed for women, by women and with women. Shaped by a steering committee of women leaders and engagement with networks and partners, our programme addresses both personal development and the future of the development sector. The conversations taking place will be women-led, raw, honest and shaped to provide an open dialogue around the most important issues facing the development community.
The conference has been designed as a platform to enable and encourage women to tell their stories and share their passion and work in this field. Our aim is to create an inclusive environment with interactive networking and a diversity of experience and perspectives represented on all panels and in all discussions.
