The Business Exchange International Women’s Day Celebration 2024

March 7 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Following the success (and sell out) of our 2022 and 2023 International Women’s Day celebrations, we’ve been hard at work to create another inspiring, uplifting and fun evening on Thursday 7th March 2024.

Join us at Lomah (Land of Milk and Honey) at Walcot House, Walcot Street, Bath, for an unforgettable night as we celebrate the amazing women in our community.

We’ll be putting the spotlight on 40 women from across Bath & Somerset and Swindon & Wiltshire who’ve been voted by you as our area’s most inspiring women. You will get the chance to network with them and hear from some of them on the night.

As part of the evening, we will be hosting a panel session with inspirational guest speakers:








Ali Vowles – Ali is a well-known local journalist having worked for the BBC in TV and radio for over 30 years. At the end of 2023, Ali retired from the BBC and is now concentrating on her freelance career.

Wera Hobhouse MP – Wera Hobhouse is the Liberal Democrat MP for Bath. She was first elected in June 2017. She has been the Liberal Democrat Shadow Leader of the House of Commons since September 2020. She is the Liberal Democrat Spokesperson for Transport. One of her biggest focuses as Liberal Democrat Spokesperson for Energy and Climate Change is keeping the government on track with meeting our Net Zero targets.

Maddie Difazio-Wright – Part of the Vibe the Wave team who have just completed the ‘World’s Toughest Row’ – rowing 3,000 nautical miles across the Atlantic from La Gomera in the Canary Islands to Antigua.

Jane is also Founder of 1st Impressions CIC. 1st Impressions aims to help women make a positive impression at interview by providing interview outfits and coaching, helping them to feel confident and ready to make the best impression.
