Spirits distributor Mangrove Global has created a series of seminars for women in the trade in partnership with Hawksmoor.

The first Mangrove x Hawksmoor seminar will take place on 5 March

The series aims to give back to women across Hawksmoor’s teams, while driving change across the industry via shared experiences from thought leaders in the sector.

The first event will occur the same week as International Women’s Day, titled ‘Smashing through the glass ceiling – empowering women to rise to the top’.

It will take place from 12pm to 2pm on Tuesday 5 March in The Lowback at Canary Wharf in London.

Panellists will include: Jen Baernreuther, commercial director at Speciality Drinks; Anna Sebastian, F&B hospitality consultant and founder of Celebrate Her; Denise Wilson OBE, chief executive at The FTSE Women Leaders Review; and Ashera Goonewardene, r(h)um brand manager at Mangrove Global.

Baernreuther was part of the founding team at Speciality Drinks and is passionate about new-to-market, specialist and luxury products.

Sebastian’s roster includes The Savoy and Raffles hotels in London. The Celebrate Her platform aims to support and promote gender equality in the industry.

In addition to being CEO of the FTSE Women Leaders Review, an independent review sponsored by the UK government, Wilson is also an executive coach and mentor to senior businesswomen around the world.

Goonewardene joined Mangrove from Spiribam after Mangrove Global’s merger with Group Bernard Hayot (GBH), and is passionate about the global rum category.

RSVP to the event is required. Those interested in attending should contact to reserve their spot.

Earlier this month, Mangrove Global named Stefanie Holt curator of its world whisky portfolio.
