Story and photos by Maxine Lewis

Northern Women of Colour held their second International Women’s Day Conference on 7th March at Ellesmere Children’s Centre. Women travelled from as far as London to attend and there were panel discussions, workshops and stalls.

The theme ‘Each for Equal’ showcased the actions women can take to challenge stereotypes, fight prejudice and celebrate their achievements. Women left the conference fully equipped to be their best in self, health and wealth.

Some of the positive feedback received was:

“Brought me out of myself and gave inspiration for my future.”

“Inspirational talks and workshops.”

“Meeting like minded women.”

“Hearing so many women’s experience.”

“Great networking, walking away with great motivation.”
