…and how we can provide the best environment for our daughters to flourish

Join us at this FREE event for parents and daughters on Saturday 9 March, 12.30-1.30pm at St Mary’s Senior School, 91 Lexden Road, Colchester, CO3 3RB

This International Women’s Day we are joined by best-selling author of ‘Don’t Fix Women’ and gender equality trailblazer, Joy Burnford, to explore what we can all do to empower girls to be who they want to be in the world. This session will provide inspiration on how we can provide the right environment (at home and at school) for our girls to be successful in the future. If we think of our daughters as seedlings, what do we as parents need to do today to create the right environment for them to grow and flourish as they move through school and into their careers?

Joy will share her experience and talk about some of the things that have helped her to have a fulfilling career, and will include:

  • The 4 Cs of career success – Confidence, Commitment, Connections and Collaboration
  • Recognising our strengths and not being afraid to ask for support
  • Importance of role modelling behaviours in the home and at work
