Launch event details

What do we mean by a fair tax system?
Pinsent Masons invites you to the Launch Event for ‘Women in Tax’ – a group established to support women working in all areas of Tax, whether in private practice, industry, Government or academia.

This event will take the form of a panel debate – on this occasion, everyone working in Tax is welcome (regardless of gender).

The topic will be ‘What do we mean by a fair tax system’ . We have a distinguished panel of speakers, chaired by Heather Self, Partner (non-lawyer) at Pinsent Masons and we can promise a lively debate, followed by a networking drinks reception. The event is supported by Female Futures at Pinsent Masons.
