When Labour entered government in 1997, Harriet was appointed secretary of state for social security and minister for women. She introduced the Minimum Income Guarantee and the National Childcare Strategy.
Over a long and successful career, Harriet has also served in government as the leader of the House of Commons and secretary of state for equalities. She is known for bringing forward the Equality Bill – a huge leap in progress which prohibits discrimination in the workplace on grounds of gender.
Harriet was the elected deputy leader of the Labour Party from 2007-2015 and was appointed shadow deputy prime minister between 2010 and 2015, during which time she served twice as interim leader of the Labour Party.
With such an extensive career spent campaigning for equality, Harriet is the perfect addition to the conference programme for next Friday’s conference.
