International Women’s Day at Coin Street

Ahead of International Women’s Day on 8 March, Unilever and Oxfam set out to explore the role of business in addressing unpaid care work – one of the most pervasive barriers to women’s empowerment – by means of a panel discussion. Held in our third floor suite, the two organisations welcomed 50 guests, including speakers from the UN Foundation and the Director of Gender Justice and Women’s Rights.

We asked organiser, Julia Hoy, why Coin Street conference centre was the perfect fit for the event:

“We chose to hold the event at Coin Street Conference Centre because of the convenient location, value, food options and large, airy rooms with natural light. During the event we held two panel discussions and group working sessions. We were lucky to have excellent speakers and great representations of the public and private sectors, academia and INGOs in attendance.”

It was a pleasure to host such a significant event and we look forward to welcoming both Oxfam and Unilever again in the future.
