Network Cork is delighted to have Minister Michael McGrath attending the event as a guest speaker. Speaking of the event he said: "I am honoured to be invited to speak at Network Cork’s Annual Dinner and Businesswoman of the Year Awards. I look forward to meeting the diverse membership of the Network Ireland Cork branch. Women are of course playing an increasingly significant role in the labour force and we are seeing more female entrepreneurs establishing their own business. However, it is clear that more needs to be done to ensure that women have equal opportunities in the labour market and are better represented in key positions in business. Events such as this are essential in this respect and it is important that we celebrate and elevate women and their careers whether they be employees or entrepreneurs running their own business. I am delighted to have the opportunity of representing the government at this important occasion.”
