Women in Tech lunch The Clarion Hotel, Cork
In 2014, we launched our “Women in Tech” programme to support diversity in the technology sector. One of the features of this programme is our lunchtime series which we have recently enhanced. The core aim of this series is to highlight the success of leading, talented female role models.
To celebrate International Women’s Day, our next lunch is on Tuesday 8th March in the Clarion Hotel from 12pm to 2pm and we are delighted that Brid Horan will address us. Brid was Deputy Chief Executive of ESB until her retirement in late 2014. She is an Independent Non-executive Director of FBD Holdings plc, a member of DCU Governing Authority and of the Council of the IMI.
Tickets are available at €30 for members and €40 for non members and includes a two course lunch so this is an ideal opportunity to invite clients or colleagues. Discounted table rates also available. If you would like to find out more about the event or book tickets, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
