Sisters to the Front will be an opportunity for women trade union officers to come together in sisterhood and solidarity, to exchange best practice in their work as professionals, and to share issues and problems that are particular to women full time officers in the movement.

The day will consist of a series of workshops to focus in on common solutions to the issues we face as sisters working for the movement, with invited experts and practitioners on specific themes.

We will also hear from two keynote speakers, both trailblazers of the movement: Jo Grady, new UCU General Secretary, and Sarah Woolley, BFAWU General Secretary-elect.

It promises to be an uplifting, reflective, and solidarity building day.

This is open to all sisters and comrades who are directly employed by a trade union, including those non-binary members of our trade union family.

N.B. This event is a non-binary & transgender safe space.

Chair: tbc

Regional Equality Forum Convenor: Harriet Eisner
