It's a Woman's World

It’s International Women’s Day today and whilst we firmly believe it shouldn’t need to be an earmarked day to recognise the impact a male or a female has on you, all of our experience tells us that a little prompter to send that recognition that you’ve been thinking about but never got around to actually doing - never hurts!

So, to celebrate International Women’s Day and to get you fired up, take a look at a handful of hero’s from around the world:

Barbara Burton - CEO of BehindBras

Barbara set up BehindBras, giving women prison leavers skills to start careers in the fashion industry, after finding herself behind bars in her late 50s.

Abisoye Ajayi-Akinfolarin - Social Impact Entrepreneur

Abisoye is the founder of GirlsCoding, an NGO that teaches girls how to code, design and build websites that help solve problems in their communities.

Stacey Cunningham - President, New York Stock Exchange

Stacey is the 67th president of the New York Stock Exchange, becoming the first woman to hold the position in the company’s 226-year history.

Vicky Phelan - Educational Manager

Vicky exposed the Cervical Check Screening scandal in Ireland, after discovering she and hundreds of other women were not told they had been given incorrect smear test results.

We bet if challenged everyone could think of a woman or 3 that they work with who is inspiring – take the opportunity today to tell them.

This what we do
