Local entrepreneurs, Morgana Loze-Doyle and Helen Kerray, have chosen Preston as the launch location for WomanKind North – a unique new event celebrating female power, grit and Northern pride that aims to connect more than 15,000 women.

WomanKind North is set to be a creative and inspiring one day event aiming to lift, equip and connect thousands of women across the region. It will take place during International Women’s Day, March 2020.

The event will explore the theme ‘Take your space – Make more space’ via top-tier Northern speakers, inspiring stories and creative workshops. The organisers are now seeking businesses in Lancashire that would like to support and gain exposure through this powerful, unique and equality driven platform, which has never been seen before in the region.

35 year old Morgana from Preston and 36 year old Helen from Walton-le-Dale are well-known in the local area having built a powerful female creative group with over 500 active members called the CWS Creatives Group. The duo is also behind popular family event, BabyLoved Family, which now operates in two locations, twice a year. 

The launch of WomanKind North is the realisation of a long-standing ambition to truly champion the diverse talent of females in the North, whilst equipping attendees with unrivalled insights and inspiration from some of the region’s most successful female business leaders.

Helen commented: “This is an event which has been needed for years in the North. An event to shine a massive spotlight on the achievements of our diverse women. We have a duty to celebrate their success and create more visibility for future women from the North to feel inspired and achieve their aims.

“Businesses and brands wanting to jump on board with this event will certainly gain huge exposure. We aim to be a big Northern voice both with our online platforms and within our communities too.”

Morgana added: “We chose Preston for a number of reasons. Firstly, it is our home-town and where we already built a strong community of women through our solo projects.

“It also has such great transport links and is ideally suited to pull in women from other smaller Northern towns/cities like Lancaster, Blackpool, Burnley, Blackburn, Morecambe and Wigan and really increase the exposure of Women from these places which don’t often host destination events.”

Early bird tickets are on sale for the event on Eventbrite. £5 of each ticket sold goes straight to a variety of charities supporting Women in the North.
