About this Event

‘Challenging the norm’ – an International Women’s Day virtual breakfast

Hosted by Westgate Hall, in collaboration with Canterbury’s Business Improvement District (BID), Friday 5 March, 9.30–11am

In a world where nothing feels normal anymore, and we’re having to reinvent, reimagine and recover, how do Kent’s women in business rise to the challenge?

Join us for Canterbury’s 4th International Women’s Day event presented by Westgate Hall in collaboration with Canterbury BID. This virtual breakfast event celebrates our business community by welcoming Caroline Cooper, Head of Commercial and Cultural Development at Canterbury City Council and Rachel Sanders, BoConcept Canterbury’s Franchisee and Director, who will lead a discussion on how women in Kent can and are paving the way for change through these challenging times.

With opportunities for networking.

This event is free, open to everyone and will be held on Zoom – a link will be sent upon registration by email, ahead of the event.

Westgate Hall’s annual International Women’s Day event began in 2018, launching the first of its kind in Canterbury. 12 women gathered around one table. Now, the event attracts over 50 women who come together to provoke inspiring conversation, debate and meaningful action.

Why ‘Challenging the Norm?’ Westgate Hall has always challenged the norm and tackled crises head-on, from its inception as a Drill Hall to the Trust’s defiant campaign to save the building from demolition, to now. This vibrant, vital community space continues to do so during the Covid-19 pandemic, by pivoting and reinventing what we do and how we think about the space and everyone who uses it and will do in the future.
