• BroadMinded. A community for curious and ambitious women.

     

    BroadMinded is all about bringing together talented and dynamic women from a wide range of sectors. No two ‘Broads’ are alike; what we have in common is a love of what we do, real ambition to succeed in whatever field we're in, and a desire to support each other's successes.

     

    We organise regular events, courses and workshops in London and now Webinars too. We find brilliant speakers who can inspire us to do more and help us to do it well, and we put on events where we can be honest about the challenges we face, and encourage and learn from each other's experiences.

    We'll be updating our calendar of events soon

    Webinar: In Conversation with Mishal Husain

    Monday 12th October 6pm

    Book your ticket here

     

    Award-winning broadcaster Mishal Husain is well-known for her fierce intelligence, her unflappable style and her politely persistent interviewing technique. Presenting BBC News at Ten, BBC Weekend News, Radio 4’s Today programme, as well as a number of critically-acclaimed documentaries, it is unsurprising that she was named by the Sunday Times as one of the 500 most influential people in Britain.

     

    She is also an inspiring role model to many – she was Today's first Muslim presenter and her brilliant book ‘Skills: what every woman needs to know’ equips us with the practical skills needed to make our ambitions a reality. Clare Balding said of it "I wish I’d been able to read this book when I was 20. Mind you, it’s never too late."

     

    We are delighted that Mishal will be joining us in October to talk about her incredible career to date as well as what we can learn from her inspiring and informative book.

    Webinar: In conversation with Jess Phillips​

    In support of Women's Aid

    Whatever your political persuasion, it’s difficult not to be impressed by Jess Phillips. An MP since 2015, she previously worked managing refuges for victims of domestic violence for Women's Aid. Throughout her political career she has been a fierce campaigner for the protection of victims of abuse in all forms, as well as for equality for women and women’s rights. Most recently, she has led the campaign to provide greater protection to victims of the 'shadow pandemic' of domestic violence. Jess is also a standout character in Westminster for her brutal honesty and seeming lack of interest in ‘party politics’.

     

    Over 100 attendees joined our webinar with Jess, hosted by Hannah MacInnes. We raised a total of £2260 for Women's Aid. Jess was on fire, sharing many an anecdote and insight on her path to politics and life in Westminster. You can watch the full webinar HERE and read our key takeaways from the event HERE.

    In conversation with Alexandra Shulman

    Partnered with Allbright

    Ex-British Vogue Editor Alexandra Shulman joined us for an evening at Allbright London to discuss her phenomenal career in fashion and publishing as well as ambition, the 24-hour work culture, women and much more.

     

    Alexandra said "The best things that happened in my career were by accident. Don’t panic if you think your career path isn’t on a straight upwards trajectory."

     

    The Future of Women in the City

    Sponsored by Schroders

    We all know the city has a long way to go when it comes to achieving gender parity. But what are the systemic and cultural problems at the root of this inequality and how can we best tackle them?

     

    We were delighted to welcome Peter Harrison, CEO of British multinational asset management company Schroders, who took us through the challenges and successes he has faced in his efforts to bring diversity into the City of London. Peter was interviewed by the brilliant former Financial Times Business Editor, Sarah Gordon.

     

    Act Like a Leader and Think Like a Leader

    Herminia Ibarra Herminia Ibarra is the Charles Handy Professor of Organizational Behavior at London Business School, and an expert in teaching and understanding leadership.

     

    Herminia told us that to become a leader, do the thing that makes you feel uncomfortable. Don’t keep staying up all night, learning every detail, hoping that by working hard your colleagues or bosses will notice. By doing the same thing, you’ll continue to get the same response. What go you to where you are now, won't get you where you want to go.

    Taking Control of your Finances

    Sponsored by Fidelity

    Following the publication of their report on the Financial Power of Women, we were delighted to work in partnership with Fidelity International to bring you an exclusive workshop tol equip you with the knowledge you need to take control of your personal finances.

     

    During this two-hour workshop we covered a full and frank discussion covering: making your money work harder for you; why you need to invest and how; an idiot’s guide to pensions and investments and the best career advice no-one ever gave you. In the second half of the session, attendees were given the chance to work one on one with our experts to take the first steps in each of these areas.

    Negotation Masterclass with Sue Williams

    Sue Williams is an experienced and internationally renowned hostage negotiator, having been the first female head of Scotland Yard's Hostage Negotation Unit. Having dealt with life and death situations, and negotiated positive outcomes out of situations seemingly unmanageable to the rest of us, we think she has a unique approach to negotiation that we could all learn from. We've run multiple workshops with Sue and continue to use her invaluable advice.

     

    Suzanne is an Associate Fellow of Saïd Business School where she teaches on the Oxford Programme on Negotiation.
