"Absolutely do it. Come on the event and be committed to making sure that you do take action and keep connected with the women that you meet on this event because that's really where the power lies."

Laila Khan

Head of Audit - Retail Customer Products, Lloyds Banking Group, UK

"Honestly, this event has been transformational for me. It is absolutely wonderful to be in a room where I feel welcome. where I feel inspired and invested in. And it has given me such a light inside me, and I honestly believe that from you, and all the other women in this room, that light is going to grow, and I am going to shine and all the women around me are going to shine, and we're going to build this network that people are actually going to be blinded by. I actually believe that."

Phoebe Rison

Program Manager, Middle East Resilient Livelihoods, Christian Aid

"I've found a really good buddy and we are going to work together. But the conference itself has given me inspiration, personally, and also on a voluntary community level. I'm running a project on my own at the moment but it's given me the courage to go and ask for help and also get others to join in to the actual project. What the conference has done is given me that extra boost to go and do it.... Don't just leave it off. Do it tonight do it tomorrow. Which I've actually already done."
