Welcome to our WINning blog

What started as a way to highlight events and news will be expanding, as the group itself goes through this exciting period of growth and change.

We are now accepting blog submissions and photos from any members about the WIN events you attend. Or, maybe you have news about something cultural in the Irish community? An exciting update about an opportunity for women in tech? A project you are working on that you think the group should know about?

We’re looking forward to showcasing our members, their achievements and interests – and to see your names up in lights! Please submit your blog, or even an outline to discuss, to enquiries@womensirishnetwork.com. (Our volunteers will do their best to accommodate as many people as possible.)

  • VICA members including Dean Duke, Sarah Cantwell, Clare Daly joined by Senator Billy Lawless and Breda Corish of the @londonirisharc . Really interesting debate on whether Irish emigrants deserve to keep their right to vote. With most European countries allowing their citizens to vote via postal vote or online, this is something Ireland has not embraced yet.
  • We came second! Thanks to #ICAP for the Battle of Networks #london

Last night was special. I was so honoured to receive The Leaders Award - for changing the fashion conversation for good - presented by Marco Bizzarri, the President and CEO of @gucci at last night’s Green Carpet Fashion Awards in Milan. Thank you @liviafirth, @ecoage and @cameramoda for this enormous honour. In my speech, on stage at La Scala, I asked the audience, “What can and will you do to use your power, position and privilege to make this beautiful, exclusive industry more inclusive and accessible to the many, who like me, have spent decades dreaming of a moment like this.” .

[Image description: Marco is possibly the tallest man in fashion and he kindly bent down for this photo. He’s wearing the most decadent midnight blue tuxedo with his trademark frames. I’m balancing the award on his knee - it was heavy - and wearing an exceptional red silk crepe full-length @rochasofficial dress from @matchesfashion. I love this dress and wear it often - not yet @ecoage’s #30Wears, but I’m getting there. 💇🏻‍♀️ by @nicolaghilardi 💄by @laura_mirta] #gcfaitalia
