WEN Cafe

WEN Wales hosts regular WEN Cafe online events over Zoom, offering opportunities for speakers and attendees to discuss a theme in detail, from policy to women’s lived experience. These discussions help to influence and inform our conversations with Welsh Government and other policy-makers regarding inequalities that women in Wales are experiencing. Each #WENCafe is advertised through social media and our members’ newsletter, which you can sign up to receive here. Tickets are available through WEN Wales’ Eventbrite page.

Sign up as a member for free and you will also gain access to member-only WEN Café workshops, such as our workshop with Women’s Environmental Network on the Feminist Green New Deal. Just click the green Join Us button at the top of the page.

Hear personal stories about the impact of investing in women from fantastic speakers representing a variety of industries and sectors including STEM, business, and the arts. Book your free place here.

The UN’s call for IWD this year is ‘invest in women: accelerate progress’ and our aim will be to showcase, through an intersectional lens, what is possible when we do invest in women and the barriers that we must break down.

We are delighted to welcome National Poet of Wales Hanan Issa to WEN Cafe, with further speakers to be announced very soon!
