Join us for a the latest in series of talks by some of this year's Strong Manchester Women at The Pankhurst Centre,

Each year Manchester City Council celebrates International Women’s Day with their Strong Manchester Women campaign. The campaign recognises the achievements of some of Manchester’s women, and produces portraits which appear on billboards and posters across the city.

We're thrilled that some of these amazing women will be coming to the centre to discuss their work and their experience of the campaign. And they'll be talking against the backdrop of the original portraits, which are here on display at The Pankhurst Centre until June 2019.

On May 16, we're welcoming Jackie Driver, Chair of Breakthrough UK, Sign Health and Advisor to Result CIC, to The Pankhurst Centre

Jackie works full time in the field of equality and human rights and has been part of the leadership of the Equality and Human Rights Commission since its inception. Currently seconded to Manchester Health and Care Commissioning to design and lead their inclusion and social value strategy, she is listed as one of the most influential disabled people in the UK in the Power 100 list. Jackie Chairs Breakthrough UK and the national leading Deaf organisation Sign Health and is an advisor to Result CIC, who provide coaching to disadvantaged communities.

Please come along to meet Jackie - one of our city's inspirational women.
