Community Foundation encourage locals to ‘Break the Bias’ this International Women’s Day


As International Women’s Day approaches, the Community Foundation prepare to host an exciting local event to highlight this year’s theme and help promote a gender equal world.

The event will take place on Tuesday 8th March at Milton Keynes Theatre and Milton Keynes Rose, Campbell Park, with a fantastic line up of inspirational women speakers, entertainment from MK Cheerleading Academy and some sweet treats provided by Cooks Kitchen, sponsored by MK College.

International Women’s Day is a global day that celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women, marking a call to action for accelerating women’s equality. This year’s theme is #BreakTheBias.

Kay Smith, Philanthropy Manager at MK Community Foundation, said “It’s all about getting people to imagine a gender equal world, free of bias, stereotypes & discrimination, where difference is valued & celebrated – and working together to take steps towards making it happen. We couldn’t be more excited for this year’s event.”

The Community Foundation have worked alongside MK Act, Truby’s Garden Tea Room, MK College, Pandora Inc CIC and Penrose Creates to put together an event not to be missed.
