A baroness and a barrister are on the bill at Brent’s International Women’s Day celebrations in Wembley Park.
Brent council and Quintain are hosting a free event in the Civic Centre on March 10 from 10am until 2.30pm.
This year's theme is Each for Equal, encouraging people to think about how individually, we're all responsible for challenging stereotypes, fighting bias, and broadening perceptions.
