Our final speaker for the upcoming ROSL International Women's Day Debate: A Woman's Place is in Politics, is Deeba Syed, trainee lawyer and member of Labour's Jo Cox Women in Leadership Programme.
Deeba will be chairing our debate on Thursday evening, alongside already announced speaker Sophie Walker, leader of the Women's Equality Party; Helen Pankhurst; author of Deeds Not Words, and descendant of Emmeline and Sylvia Pankhurst; and Akeela Ahmed, political activist and organiser of the London Women's March.
In January, she was accepted to the second cohort of entrants to the Jo Cox Women in Leadership Programme, set up by the Labour party. Set up to train the next generation of passionate and experienced women to lead Labour, it aims for the legacy of Jo Cox to live on by increasing participation of women in politics.
