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.
