- Margaret Casely-Hayford, company secretary and chief legal head of Waitrose & John Lewis
- Michelle Gayle, actress (Grange Hill and Eastenders) and author
- Rev Rose Hudson-Wilkin, first Black female chaplain to the speaker of the House of Commons
- Dr Uchenna Okoye, offical dentist of Channel 4'S '10 Years Younger' & clinical director of London Smiling dental practices
- Miss Samantha Tross, the first Black female orthopaedic consultant surgeon in the UK
the night was empowering, educational but most of all focused on being better and tools on how to achieve this.
The I'mPOSSIBLE. conversation is a series of intimate events staged in central London where a panel of British women of colour, from all walks of life, come together, to share their stories on the theme of 'how I became POSSIBLE.' It's a purely inspirational and empowering event which gives a platform for British women of colour an opportunity to share their journey on how they became POSSIBLE. with no interruptions or apologies."
