Our speaker will be Old Member Nicola Waterworth (1998), giving a talk on: “From women's suffrage to social media: what have we learnt in 100 years of women in politics?”. Following the talk, Nicola will lead a debate amongst attendees.
Nicola creates spaces for people to explore their understanding of the systems they are operating within to enable change. Working as a coach, change facilitator of teams and projects and a researcher, with interests in: gender equality; wellbeing and the future of work; entrepreneurialism and family business; collaboration and co-production for organisational and social change.
A modern history graduate from Queen's, Nicola pursued postgraduate study at University of Bristol before a formative career in local government policy and strategy, partnership working and service commissioning. Nicola then managed major transformational change programmes within education and services for vulnerable children and families. Nicola passionately believes that it is people and an understanding of their relationships with self, others and our environment that deliver meaningful and purposeful change.
Nicola is co-founder of Happen Together CIC with Queen's Old Member Eve Holt (nee Francis, 1997). Alongside private and business practice Happen Together are supporting women and girls to participate in political and public life with The Parliament Project, The Pankhurst Trust: RiseVoiceVote, Fawcett Society, the Local Government Association and Girlguiding England and Wales. Nicola is co-author of ‘Women, Power & Politics: what’s changed in 100 years?’ for the British Council. As co-founder of Find It Film, Nicola uses film to explore the many diverse stories of women’s experience of sports and outdoor adventure. Nicola is a Northern Power Women Role Model living in Macclesfield in East Cheshire.
