Courage Calls! History is made when power and courage go hand-in-hand. Join us at our annual conference for a day centred on cultivating courage, expressing power through activism, and creating lasting change for generations to come. This year we are bringing together inspiring leaders and pioneers from all walks of life, from women reporting at the frontlines of politics to grassroots activists effecting change. We are thrilled to announce a packed programme of empowering discussions, interactive breakout sessions, and an evening reception – the perfect opportunity to celebrate our collective power.

The day will include a welcome address from Fawcett Chief Executive Sam Smethers, and the opportunity to speak with Fawcett Chair Fiona Mactaggart. Our first panel discussion of the day, 'On the Frontline: Women reporters in the political space', features a stellar line-up with Channel 4 News Correspondent Fatima Manji, Editor of the Daily Mirror Alison Phillips, Politics Editor at gal-dem Leah Cowan, journalist and author Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, chaired by Fawcett trustee, comedian and commentator Ayesha Hazarika. Our marketplace will give you the chance to explore feminist literature and merchandise, take action on key Fawcett campaigns and interact with other equality organisations.
