International Women’s Day 2024 – Lisa Shaw

This year for International Women’s Day we have spoken with some of our team members on their thoughts and how they plan to #InspireInclusion.

The aim of the IWD 2024 #InspireInclusion campaign theme is to inspire others to understand and value women’s inclusion, to forge a better world.

When women themselves are inspired to be included, there’s a sense of belonging, relevance, and empowerment. Collectively, we want to forge a more inclusive world for women.
