Everybody Wurqs: Launch Event
Everybody Wurqs is a monthly event series dedicated to personal growth through the lens of diversity and inclusion. Their belief that the best leaders, colleagues and human beings are those that understand the perspectives of the people around them, have led them to design events that:
– Inspire you with new perspectives of the world through personal stories
– Provide you with tools and experiences to support your own growth and learning
– Create an environment to make it easy for you to connect with wonderful new people
For their launch event, they have a very special speaker lined up. As recently featured on BBC One’s The Big Life Fix, Emma Lawton is the Head of Creative at fintech startup SPIXII, and just 3 years ago, at the age of 29, was diagnosed with Parkinson’s. Emma will be talking to us about how her life has changed since the diagnosis, in both how she has been forced to adapt to her condition, but also the new perspective on life and career that it has afforded her.
