Eight SI Derby members attend the annual Conference

The Federation Conference was held in Liverpool this year and 8 SI Derby members attended. The Conference runs from Thursday evening to Saturday evening. There were 1200 members from around the world in Liverpool, who heard inspiring and informative speakers, including Terry Waite, Professor Helen Pankhurst and Sir Ranulph Fiennes. Other speakers without headline names updated us on access and inclusion for those with disabilities and the fight against FGM, whilst others inspired us by describing their adventures and achievements. We also learnt about club projects, all aimed at improving life for women and girls and were introduced to the 5P’s, People, Prosperity, Prevention, Partnership and Planet, which cover the Sustainable Development Goals.

Here are some of our members enjoying an evening together.
