In this week's episode Lynne speaks to her friend Simone Roche MBE, the CEO and founder of Northern Power Women, about how she launched this campaign out of a passion to connect and engage with people about gender equality. It all began in March 2015, when Simone took the first steps in creating a business that delivers a message to accelerate gender diversity across the North of England, offering engaging opportunities to women to be heard and promote their achievements. From this, Northern Power Women was born. You can learn more about Northern Power Women by visiting northernpowerwomen.com and follow Simone on Twitter @SimoneRoche.
