The Women@Beryl network will host its inaugural International Women’s Day series to celebrate this year’s theme #ChooseToChallenge – raise awareness against bias and take action for equality in cycling and micromobility.

A series of panel discussions will run online from 8-11 March and will include thought-provoking discussions from an amazing lineup of women who are leading the way in business, the media, tech and micromobility.

Over the four day event, attendees will be able to join five sessions each focusing on a different theme.
