We have postponed the Gender Finance Lab, scheduled between 5:30 – 8:30pm on 17 March.
At the Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship the health, welfare, and safety of our visitors, students, course participants and employees remains the number one priority for us all. We are following the advice from Saïd Business School which has suspended face-to-face teaching for in-person degrees until 27 April 2020 due to COVID-19.
The Gender Finance Lab is collaborative programme that relies on shared experience and peer to peer learning. We are in the process of ‘retooling’ the Gender Finance Lab to enable online learning and engagement. We will be in touch shortly with an updated date and programme for the postponed Gender Finance Lab.
Please join us for the Gender Finance Lab!
