Women in Leadership
To celebrate this year’s International Women’s Day, #EachforEqual, Black Country Women in Leadership will play host to a fascinating event with a host of leading businesswomen and speakers from across the region.
Sarah Cooper-Jones – Regional Director – Corporate & Commercial Banking at NatWest
Advocate of the Year at the Women in Finance Awards 2019, Sarah has been recognised for supporting females in senior levels and stamping out barriers to growth for women in financial services. Championing the importance of maintaining a good work-life balance and the importance of flexible working to a ensure healthy and sustainable approach to life balance and fulfilment at both home and work, Sarah has been commended for her advocacy addressing intersectionality of gender, social mobility and ethnicity.
Jade Linton – Senior associate at Thursfields Solicitors
Jade, chosen recently to appear in a national campaign, ‘Project Embrace’, and featured across 800 billboards around the country, is a champion for diversity in the workplace. A specialist in employment law, Jade challenges the misconceptions and works to promote a more inclusive workplace.
Maxine Laceby, Founder & CEO of Absolute Collagen
Beauty entrepreneur, Maxine Laceby, discovered a collagen supplement she formulated in her kitchen at the age of 50. Giving up her career at the age of 25 to become a fulltime stay at home mum, a gift she treasures every day, Maxine returned to the workplace aged 50, a terrifying and exhilarating experience by her own admission. After officially launching Absolute Collagen in the UK in 2017, she is now on track for a £10 million turnover, making Absolute Collagen one of the UK’S fastest growing direct consumer brands.
Each of the speakers lined up for the event will bring something different to the room with the event promising to be engaging, eye opening and discussion raising. During the event afternoon tea will be served.
