Alumni Lecture Series - Sophie Walker
For the third event in the University of Reading Alumni Lecture Series, we are delighted to welcome inspirational alumna Sophie Walker, leader of the Women's Equality Party.

The Women's Equality Party is a new collaborative force in British politics uniting people of all genders, diverse ages, backgrounds, ethnicities, beliefs and experiences in the shared determination to see women enjoy the same rights and opportunities as men so that all can flourish.

Sophie worked as an international news agency journalist for nearly twenty years and is an ambassador for the National Autistic Society, campaigning for better support and understanding of autism, particularly in women and girls.

Sophie was elected leader of the Women's Equality Party in July 2015, and in January 2016 was voted to represent the party in the London Mayoral election. She garnered one in twenty of the votes cast for Mayor in London on 5 May.

The lecture will be followed by a Q & A session led by Professor Ellie Highwood, Professor of Meteorology, University of Reading.

University of Reading staff, students and alumni are welcome to attend. These inspiring and thought provoking lectures are free but booking is essential as places are limited.
