Thanks so much for inviting me to an amazing night, listening to the [DCA] Debate on gender equality and why we must remove the barriers. I particularly liked the comment that diversity is about making the workforce a more effective one, a more respectful one. Congratulations on such superb organisation and many thanks for including me.
