Women in Scotland’s Economy Launch Event

September 30, 2010

You are invited to the Launch of the Women in Scotland’s Economy series, a programme for debate, discussion and challenge in gender equality and equality analysis in the development of economic policy.  The programme of seminars, debates and conferences will run over the coming year, ending with an international conference in October 2011.

The launch will be held on Monday 18 October 2010 from 5pm in the Deeprose Lecture Theatre, Glasgow Caledonian University, and will take the form of a panel debate by senior women involved in policy development and analysis engaging in discussion on the position and contribution of women to Scotland’s economy.  There will also be the opportunity for networking and, it is hoped, to stimulate debate and discussion beyond the event.

The format of the evening is as follows:

5pm                       Arrival and refreshments

5.30pm                 Introduction and Welcome by GCU Principal, Professor Pamela Gillies

5.45-6.45pm       Panel input: Yvonne Strachan, Scottish Government Ros Micklem, EHRC Linda McDowell, Scottish Enterprise
