Charlotte speaks at Women in Leadership Conference at Marjon


Today I spoke to staff and students at the first ever #MarjonWomen conference about my experiences of being a woman in politics. We covered a range of issues from challenges facing marginalised groups, getting more women into public life, and what it’s like being a political candidate two months in.

My main advice from my time working in the tech sector and my political life so far was: be yourself, be courageous, support people around you, and always work with purpose. The students were really motivated and engaged and it was brilliant to spend time with them for the afternoon.
