Together we are bringing International Women’s Day to life, celebrating women’s achievements, raising awareness against bias and taking action for equality.

Many colleagues have shared their views on equality and here we are sharing a small selection.

Following International Women’s Day we will continue a meaningful conversation about it in team meetings. On an ongoing basis, we are encouraging a mindset among our leaders that a diverse team makes an important contribution to the successful delivery of business ambitions and ensuring representation of female colleagues is as equal as possible at every level.
