To celebrate the launch of the Second Home Nursery, which will open alongside their new family-oriented workspace in London Fields in spring 2017, we’re hosting a panel talk about all things women and work.

Taking place on Saturday October 1st between 4-6pm the talk will be co-hosted by our editor-in-chief, Charlotte Philby, and our editor, Charlotte Rivers, we’ll be speaking to none other than the self named ‘foghorn of flexible working’ Anna Whitehouse of Mother Pukka, Phanella Mayall Fine and Alice Olins the founders of the hugely popular Step Up Club, and Mariam Molar founder of Mentor MatchHER, a unique initiative that connects women in business with business mentors.

As well as hearing the panel talk about important issues such as flexible working for mothers, starting a business and confidence in the workplace, there will also be a chance for you to ask our panel questions, giving you a fantastic opportunity to pick the brains of these super savvy business women.

The talk is part of a wider Kids Day event organised by Second Home where ther will be a whole host of other events taking place throughout the day both for adults and kids including science workshops and animation making in the day, and film screenings and music in the evening. And to top it all off this is all taking place inside an inflatable structure created by DOSIS Architects which has to be seen to be believed.
