Join our evening gathering including nibbles, music, discussion and talks from local female entrepreneurs around enterprise, environment and inclusion this International Women’s Day. 

We are building a greener and more inclusive economy here in Dunoon.

In particular, how this could work better for women dealing with care, health and rural challenges.

Hosted by Janis Marshall Reilly from Third Sector Interface and Hannah Clinch of Dunoon Goes POP, there will be opportunities for conversation on these topics and talks by three local female entrepreneurs. 

Our speakers:

These enterprising women will talk about their experience of developing a business in Dunoon and will share their reflections on how their business can contribute to a NetZero economy here in Dunoon.
