BREAK THE GLASS – Gender equality event with Westminster Alumni
To mark International Women’s Week, the Alumni Relations team is holding a gender equality event called Break the Glass. This event is an opportunity to take part in different activities and discussions around gender equality with Westminster alumni. We’ll be exploring the gender equality issues we face in modern society and how you can combat them.
One of the alumni leading activities is Suzanne Bamgboye, Project Quantity Surveyor at Galliford Try (Quantity Surveying BSc 2012). Sue was shortlisted for the category ‘Best Woman Quantity Surveyor’ in the European Women in Construction & Engineering Awards in 2016.
|Date:||7 March 2017|
|Time:||6:00pm to 8:00pm|
|Location:||Fyvie Hall, Regent Campus, 309 Regent Street, London W1B 2HW|
Please note: This event is free and is open to students and alumni of all genders, but you must register in advance to attend.
There will be time for the audience to ask alumni questions during the activities and discussions, and more informally during the drinks reception afterwards.

The Difference Festival
The societies we live in and the political regimes that control them are undergoing dramatic and, for some of us, frightening changes at the moment. One of the great things about university study is that it teaches us how to think, how to question and how to prepare for an uncertain future in politics, international relations, society, crime and legislation, global communication…
The Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities is therefore delighted to welcome all staff and students of the University, as well as members of the general public, to The Difference Festival: a week of free talks, presentations and debates on the big issues. In the week beginning 27 February you can enjoy a rich menu of events at our Regent Street Campus, at lunchtime, late afternoon or in the evening.
Check out the website for the full programme, where you can also register to attend and ensure you have a reserved place: www.westminster.ac.uk/difference-festival
