Bright Network International Women's Day

Application deadline is 4th March 2022, 11:59pm

We are extremely excited to announce that Bright Network’s International Women’s Day event is returning once again - and this time we’ll be back in person.

Taking place in the heart of London at 8 Fenchurch Street, this is your chance to connect with over 120 of our brightest female members who are passionate about gender equality.

The event will celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women in the workplace today, as well as provide you with insights into how to succeed in historically male-dominated sectors. On top of this, you’ll also have the chance to meet leading employers who are at the forefront of gender equality and are looking to inspire the next generation.

Why attend

Build greater confidence

Our skill and panel sessions have been tailored to provide you with insights from top women leaders who will provide insights for how to feel empowered, realise your own potential and succeed in male-dominated sectors.

Get ahead of the fierce competition

It’s no myth that securing a job after you graduate can be tough, that’s why this event is the best place to start your career search. With a number of top employers in attendance, this is your opportunity to personally meet with industry leaders and make yourself known to them.

Take it from recent graduates

Hear from a number of recent graduates who have secured top roles and are succeeding in the workplace. Learn how they prepared for interviews, got their first roles, found the shift from university to work and much more.
