They say don't talk about politics, but when one of your alumnae is Anushka Asthana, Editor-at-Large at The Guardian, why wouldn't you?

Introduced by Mrs Helen Jeys, Anushka will deliver this year's Founders' Lecture virtually on Teams, sharing her journey from Stalybridge to the City. She will cover how as a journalist you even begin to report on Brexit, Covid-19 and the rise of personality politics. Anushka will also discuss the rigours of political commentary and the demands of delivering her daily podcast, Today in Focus.

This event is open to all and free to attend. Once you have booked your place/s, a link to attend this online event will be sent to you nearer the time.
