Islington Giving’s International Women’s Day Celebrations featured on the BBC

Inspiring Islington women attending our celebration of International Women’s Day have been featured on the BBC. Laurette Josiah, Founder and Artistic Director of Amberleigh talked about how women in Islington create spaces for young people living in poverty to “make them feel happy” and “lift their heads high”. Laurette also stressed the importance of sharing knowledge in the borough. “Information sharing is so important. And today was an information sharing event, I think that was fantastic. Well done ladies!”

Director of Islington Giving, Kristina Glenn, said the event was a celebration of the “most amazing women who live in Islington, work in Islington, and support Islington women”. – © copyright 2018 BBC – original link <>
