Lydia Slater: “It’s never been more necessary to seek the advice of visionary leaders.”

Taking place from 16 to 19 November, the inaugural Bazaar At Work Week, held in partnership with the global wealth management firm UBS, is a four-day series of virtual talks, panel discussions and interactive Q&A sessions featuring high-profile women from sectors including business, technology and the arts.

Bringing together inspirational female leaders from Britain and beyond, the event will explore themes covering the power of inclusion, the future of the office and how to navigate the uncertainties of the post-Covid landscape, say the organisers.

Actress Gillian Anderson will be in conversation with Bazaar’s acting editor-in-chief Lydia Slater about female empowerment, her career on stage and screen, and playing Margaret Thatcher in the new series of The Crown.

Additional speakers featured during Bazaar At Work Week include:

  • Julia Gillard, the former Prime Minister of Australia
  • Laura Bates, the founder of the Everyday Sexism Project
  • Ann Francke, the chief executive of the Chartered Management Institute
  • Tabitha Goldstaub, the chair of the government’s AI council, and co-founder of CognitionX
  • Rita Clifton, the former vice chairman at Saatchi & Saatchi and CEO of Interbrand, business leadership expert and author of Love Your Imposter
  • Margaret Heffernan, an entrepreneur, CEO, writer and TED speaker
  • Maryam Meddin, founder of the Soke, a private clinic integrating mental healthcare, wellbeing, support and performance coaching

Lydia Slater says: “Given the extraordinary challenges of the pandemic, both personal and professional, it’s never been more necessary to seek the advice of visionary leaders. My hope is that Bazaar at Work Week will empower our participants with the tools and insights they need, not only to survive, but to thrive in a constantly changing world.”
