International Women’s Day will be celebrated in style at the home of Munster Rugby this year.

Network Ireland will host a major event at Thomond Park on Friday 8 March to celebrate International Women’s Day.

The event will highlight women in business and focus on the importance of building resilience. Hundreds of women from around Ireland are expected to attend the conference, from budding entrepreneurs, SME owners, professionals and leaders in indigenous and multinational organisations to non-profits, charities, arts and the public sector.

The Oscar nominated Irish firm Cartoon Saloon will be at the event. Other speakers include former Ireland rugby international, Fiona Steed and performance coach, Gerry Hussey. The event MC is journalist and former Cork Independent editor Deirdre O’Shaughnessy. The theme for this year’s conference is #BuildingResilience.

President of Network Ireland and Cork businesswoman Helen Wycherley said: “We want to focus on #BuildingResilience – for ourselves and our businesses. It is important to develop a positive and resilient mind-set to conquer the challenges we as businesswomen encounter.

“Our celebration of International Women’s Day will be a fantastic, inspiring, fun event for all with endless opportunity for learning and connecting with other women in business from across the country.”

Network Ireland is partnering with Local Enterprise Office, Limerick for the International Women's Day event. AIB are the official partners of Network Ireland nationally.

The theme for Helen’s Presidency this year is ‘Step up’. She wants to help women all around Ireland to fulfil their potential by empowering them to ‘step up and do more’.

Helen said: “Through my presidency of Network Ireland, I want to help women to fulfil their potential by empowering them to step up and do more. That is why I’ve chosen #StepUp as the theme for 2019.”

“I want to help and support our members, to do more and be more. So this year will be all about empowering women to step up to the challenge, to be ready to seize opportunities as they arise, to be confident and go for that promotion, apply for that grant application, go on State boards or take more risks and to say ‘I can’ not ‘I might’ or ‘maybe’.”
