International Women’s Day 2018: The Seven Dials panel

Earlier this month we joined Broadcaster Gemma Cairney and a panel of progressive female role models to celebrate International Women’s Day 2018.


Alongside Charlie Craggs (Trans activist and Author), Jenny Scott (founder of Mothers Meeting), and Olivia Wollenberg (founder of Livia’s Kitchen), Dinny contributed to a lively discussion on this year’s theme: ‘Press for Progress’ – a campaign to help accelerate gender parity.

The night was rife with strong empowered voices that touched on key discussions surrounding female success, challenges and triumphs, both in and out of the workplace.


Talking about our tough, self-critical inner voice, Dinny told the audience: “the word should, should be gone” as we find a way to balance and reconcile our commitments at home and at work.



Gemma – our host – reassured us “everyone makes mistakes, there is no guru, on wards and upwards” and the whole vibe in the room was one of optimism, female strength and fighting spirit.



Celebrating IWD in our own Dinny Hall way, we released earlier that week: an exclusive jewellery edit called Suffragette. Designed in honour of those inspirational and assertive women who made their mark in 1918, the limited-edition collection is vibrant in colour and promises violet for dignity, green for hope and white for purity.


Dinny Hall is delighted to be a part of the Seven Dials community in Covent Garden.  We love collaborating with our retail neighbours in this exciting part of London – so stay tuned for upcoming events and talks on their Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
