International Women’s Day - Women Who Inspire Us
On Friday 8 March, women and men around the world will come together to celebrate International Women’s Day. A day dedicated to championing women’s achievements and challenging gender bias.
This year, the day’s campaign theme is #BalanceforBetter which is a call-to-action for driving gender balance around the world. And what better way to celebrate, than honouring just a few of the many talented women who work and partner with us at Springfree.
