On the event, talks will include Keith Harris of UK Music, model and activist Munroe Bergdorf, BBC Radio 1 presenters B Traits, artists Fay Milton of Savages, Abbey Raymonde from Bella Union and Roxanne De Bastion, gender-focused childcare organisation Manny & Me, Gabriel from non-stop dancehall party The Heatwave, Snoochie Shy (Radar Radio) and Lily Mercer (Rinse FM).

All funds raised will be donated to UN Women NC UK towards gender equality.
