On Friday, March 8, 2024, ETK Group organised an Afternoon Tea at the UK House of Lords for a group of inspirational women across diverse professions to celebrate International Women’s Day, very kindly hosted by Lord Kulveer Ranger.

During the event, we had an insightful panel discussion chaired by ETK Group Managing Director, Bolaji Sofoluwe, alongside the incredible Rupa Ganatra Popat Founder and Managing Partner of Arāya Ventures, and Alice Hopkin, Special Adviser to the UK Home Office.

The panellists shared great insights and experiences on women in business, government-led initiatives, and whether or not legislation was needed to increase investment in women.

Key takeaways from their discussion include:

👉 It makes economic sense to support women with funding as women are more likely to reinvest in healthcare, education, and communities.

👉 There is a need to empower women in financial education and incorporate this into the mainstream educational curriculum.

👉 There is a need to expand the table in various aspects of life to allow for diversity of thought, leadership, and equal opportunities.

Our sincere appreciation goes to Lord Kulveer Ranger for hosting us, and Oliver Scheidt deserves special recognition for his consistent support.

A huge thank you to our amazing guests for giving up their afternoon to be with us at the event.
