Celebrating International Women’s Day in Torbay

On International Women’s Day in Torbay, the air was full of anticipation as women from all walks of life gathered to celebrate positivity, inspiration, empowerment, and networking.

Women from across Torbay have celebrated International Women’s Day 2024 by coming together to celebrate the incredible achievements of women at an event organised by TDA. Held at the Hampton by Hilton, the event was sponsored by South Devon College, Emerson Wills, Poppy Jakes Photography and Devon Women in Business.

A raffle on the day, supported by an amazing range of local businesses who provided some great prizes, raised over £500 for the Ladies Lounge in Torquay; a charity supporting vulnerable women in the area.

International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women’s equality.

Over 70 women, from diverse backgrounds, came together to share their stories and experiences, celebrating the power, achievements, and resilience of women in Torbay. Delegates participated in engaging discussions, thought-provoking talks and gained valuable insights from a panel of inspiring speakers including Jess Wiggins, Founder of Impact Coaching, Lorraine Arnold, award-winning local businesswoman and Alison Hernandez, Police and Crime Commissioner for Devon and Cornwall.
