    Why are both speakers men?

    • Thanks for your question!
      We just found out about the second speaker. As soon as we did we recognised the problem of an all-male panel and started looking for a female chair . Our seminars normally have a good gender balance in terms of speakers and one of the speakers at the last seminar – Kate Higgins – highlighted how successful the group is at engaging women in participative politics in contrast with most of the referendum debates she’d taken part in.
