To celebrate both International Women’s Day and the centenary of women winning the right to vote, The Rising Network is holding an exciting event full of inspirational workshops and talks for women.
The Rising Network is a forum where women from diﬀerent industries and expertise can connect with and empower one another. Women can share their experiences and tips, helping each other from how to successfully run a business to how to practise mindfulness in everyday life. With a blog full of useful articles, to hands-on events where you can meet with fellow women face to face, The Rising network ensures to be inclusive of all women from all walks of life.
Their upcoming networking event is The Rising Festival on March 10th. With seven workshops to come along too, there will be something of interest to everyone! One that looks particularly interesting is ‘Be Seen, Be Heard: 10 Smart Ways to Raise Your Proﬁle with Susan Ritchie’, as it promises to tell us 10 ways in which we can positively raise our professional proﬁle, to ensure you stand out in your team and your organisation. Workshops such as these are an amazing opportunity for students to learn what industries are looking for in candidates, as well as boosting your self conﬁdence as you get chatting to many successful, interesting women!
As well as workshops, there are talks and performances for you to enjoy. The Rising Network are oﬀering students a special ticket price of £15, which includes entry to all the workshops, talks, lunch and a happy hour at the end of the day!
