Shoosmiths has consistently sought to promote women in business and support female entrepreneurship. We have done this through supporting various of our initiatives such as Women in Finance (supporting women in the financial services sector), InHerShoos (our women led networking initiative) and spHERe (our initiative supporting female founders and venture capitalists within the VC space) as well as signing up to committing to the social mobility pledge. We look forward to hosting these communities along with our wider clients and partners for this dynamic and thought-provoking event.
