National Assembly for Wales
International Women’s Day 2012
08 March 2012
As the National Assembly’s first female Presiding Officer, I am committed to ensuring that everyone in Wales has a say in the way our country is run. In particular, I want Welsh women’s voices to be heard and their views valued. I’d therefore like to invite you to join me on Thursday 08 March to mark International Women’s Day at the Assembly in Cardiff Bay.
This year, the Assembly has been working with the Equality and Human Rights Commission, the Institute of Welsh Affairs, the Women’s Institute and the British Council to put together a programme of activities in the Senedd and in the Pierhead.
The day will begin with a breakfast meeting in the Pierhead from 08.30 until 10.30, the first of a series of such meetings that will be held across Wales this year. I will also be hosting a lecture in partnership with the British Council which will begin at 12.00. This will be followed by lunch at 13.00.
The remainder of the day will feature discussion and debate from noted Welsh
women as well as workshops and activities hosted by the Women’s Institute.
Places are limited so we would be grateful if you could confirm your attendance at
the breakfast, lunchtime lecture or full programme of activities.
We look forward to seeing you there.
