The Bag of Aspirations: Reimagining What's Possible

Thursday 10th March

10:00 - 11:00 AM

A webinar on female empowerment

As part of International Women's Week, ABSTRACT is hosting a webinar in celebration of this on Thursday 10th March. The virtual event will be hosted by Andy Nicol, CEO, and delivered by Sue Liburd MBE DL.

This event is inspired by the Bag of Aspirations, which is a sculpture designed by Kalliopi Lemos and depicts the expensive, highly sought-after Hermès Birkin handbag. Sue offers fresh perspectives from her ‘Bag of Aspirations’ on how we can reimagine and change our relationship with bias to create a more gender-equal and inclusive world. 

During this webinar, you will:

  • Discuss social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women 

  • Imagine and change your relationship with bias

  • Gain actionable insights and ideas to accelerate equality on a personal level and in business

What have others said...

One part of RBS’s rehabilitation has been a re-set in terms of our culture and behaviours. One part of that has been a focus on opportunity for all. We have been delighted with the support and help from ABSTRACT.


Fantastic session, lots of useful tips and theory on how to understand and overcome challenges. Thanks, Sue Liburd MBE DL and all the team at ABSTRACT (UK & INTERNATIONAL) for delivering an inspiring masterclass.
