International Women's Day at Hope Street Xchange

Celebrate International Women's Day 2019 with Hope Street Xchange.

Hope Street Xchange is once again proud to support International Women’s Day by hosting its own event on Friday 8th March. This year we’ll be highlighting the fantastic work being done across the region to support women through education and into work.

Join us for an inspiring and empowering event which focuses on the help available to those who may face obstacles, such as coming from disadvantaged backgrounds or facing complex barriers, and celebrates their achievements.
