AllBright, a community that helps celebrate and connect working women, will be hosting its second annual festival for working women in July, called FoundHER. Its much anticipated return will take place in three UK locations this year - London, Manchester and for the first time, Glasgow.
Last year’s FoundHER was attended by over 1,000 women. It was also the impetus for AllBright to launch the very first female-only members’ club for working women in the UK, which opened in London on International Women's Day this year - March 8th 2018.
FoundHER is a five-day celebration that includes events, talks and workshops, covering topics such as careers, modern feminism and philanthropy, politics and current affairs, health and wellbeing, with plenty of live entertainment, delicious food and drink, and unique networking opportunities with highly talented women. It’s an opportunity for executives and founders to meet like-minded women to inspire, encourage and collaborate around a range of unique events and stellar speakers.
This year’s speakers and panel hosts include: Channel 4 News presenter and journalist Cathy Newman; TV presenter and beauty brand founder, Trinny Woodall; Mother Pukka blogger, Anna Whitehouse; Cefinn founder Samantha Cameron, writer Julia Hobsbawm, Healthy Eating chef Melissa Hemsley, PR guru and agency CEO Jenny Halpern; CEO of Gulf International Bank, Katherine Garrett-Cox; co-founder of the Coffee Republic chain, Sahar Hashemi; Olympic gold medal-winning hockey player, Crista Cullen; writer and women’s rights activist, Helen Pankhurst; Liverpool Member of Parliament, Luciana Berger MP; Chief Foreign Correspondent for The Sunday Times, Christina Lamb; Editorial Director of Refinery 29, Sarah Raphael; writer, broadcaster and podcast host, Emma Gannon; Cosmopolitan Associate Editor, Amy Grier; Irish writer, academic and broadcaster, Sinead Burke; cook, food writer and co-founder of the Wahaca chain of Mexican street food restaurants, Thomasina Miers; British and World Kickboxing Association female Atomweight Muay Thai boxing champion, Ruqsana Begum; and TV presenter Kate Thornton.
Over 1,500 FoundHER tickets will be available, starting at £15 per ticket. The festival will kick-off with three days in London on 3, 4 and 5 July at The AllBright club, the home of the festival. FoundHER will then travel to Manchester’s iconic King Street Townhouse on Tuesday 10th July, before its final destination in Glasgow on Thursday 12th July, hosted by FoundHER supporter EY.
