Celebrating International Women's Day

Tomorrow is International Women’s Day (IWD), an annual event that celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women around the globe. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women’s equality.

IWD has been running for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people. Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere – it’s not specific to any country, group or organisation.

Resourcing Advisor Lucy Lings said: “Our recruiting process ensures we consider male and female applicants equally, importantly there is no gender bias. Selection is founded on someone having the right skillset, qualifications and drive for the role, not what gender they happen to be. However, there is also an ongoing challenge across all industry sectors and that’s to encourage women to pursue careers in STEM subjects – science, technology, engineering and maths.

“As part of activities around International Women’s day, throughout the coming week, we’ll be celebrating some of the women working across our business, sharing their inspiration, experiences and expertise on our social media channels. They are fantastic examples of what can be achieved and the career paths that can be built across an extremely diverse range of disciplines.”
