Join us to debate what will undoubtedly be one of the big media issues of this year, "Do women have equal opportunities and pay in the media?" on Monday, 19 February at Stationers' Hall.
This event is sponsored by Cision and organised by the London Press Club in association with The Worshipful Company of Stationers and Newspaper Makers, the Society of Editors, and Women in Journalism.
Debating this question will be a panel chaired by Anne McElvoy, Senior Editor at The Economist, columnist and broadcaster. Anne says, “one of the most pressing issues for facing the media is one side-lined for decades: the difference in roles, esteem and pay for women in the industry. I expect a rigorous and energetic debate on what this is and what to do about it.”
We are delighted to this year be joined by such a terrific panel of high profile and committed professionals:
Miriam Gonzales, Founder and Chair of Inspiring Girls and a Partner of international law firm Dechert LLP where she is co-chair of the firm's International Trade and Government Regulation practice
Sue Ryan, head of training for Mail Publishing Group, Director of the London Press Club and Committee Member of Women in Journalism
Charlotte Ross, deputy editor, Evening Standard
Charlie Brinkhurst-Cuff, deputy editor at gal-dem, weekend editor at Dazed and Confused Magazine and columnist
Ian Macgregor, President of the Society of Editors and Editor Emeritus, Telegraph Group
Tickets are £10 inc VAT and the event will commence at 6.30pm for 7.00pm with a short drinks reception followed by the main business of the evening. There will be time afterwards to meet and network, over further liquid refreshment.
