Limitless

 

At Thoughtworks, we advocate passionately for positive social impact and greater equality in our industry and wider society. As such, we believe it’s important to find space for women leaders to share common concerns, experiences and learnings. We launched Limitless specifically for this purpose.

 

As we reflect on the initiative, we are delighted to see the Limitless community continue to grow and are proud to facilitate valuable exchanges alongside hugely inspirational, trailblazing women speakers from a wide range of backgrounds. Our next event will take place during international Women's Week in 2022, please keep an eye out for further details.

Keynote Speaker: Gina Miller

 

Gina Miller is a prominent businesswoman, a passionate philanthropist and conscious capitalist who has campaigned in the areas of investment and pension reform, political transparency and scrutiny, modern day slavery, social justice and the charity sector. Gina is also the co-founder of SCM Direct - a disruptive digital wealth management company based on 100% transparency, low cost and investing with ethics. 

 

In 2016, Gina challenged the UK Government over its authority to implement Brexit and was successful in both the High Court and Supreme Court. In 2019, Gina challenged the UK Government for the second time. It led to the landmark Supreme Court decision which saw the government’s extended prorogation of Parliament ruled unlawful. A passionate believer in responsible capitalism, she believes we all have a civic duty to be actively engaged in challenging contemporary issues facing businesses, politics and wider society.

 

Gina has received many accolades in recognition of her campaigning and business achievements, including The Most Influential Black Person in the UK and Campaigner of the Year by the Political Studies Association. 

 

With a life of fighting injustice, challenging power, and dealing with trauma, Gina discusses social equality and justice, resilience, dealing with failure and finding and using one’s voice. Her 2018 book Rise is an extraordinary account of what it means to stand up for justice, and for yourself, no matter the cost.
