International Women’s Day – what’s on?

It’s international women’s day on Friday the 8th, while we take a day off there’s lots of events you can pop into .. also our next Girl Geek Dinner event is booked so check it out and pop along (You don’t have to be in tech to take an interest, we won’t test you and it’s a very friendly group)

If we do not lift up women and families, everyone will fall short.

International Women’s Day 2024 campaign theme is ‘Inspire Inclusion’

The campaign theme for International Women’s Day 2024 is Inspire Inclusion.

When we inspire others to understand and value women’s inclusion, we forge a better world.

And when women themselves are inspired to be included, there’s a sense of belonging, relevance, and empowerment.

Collectively, let’s forge a more inclusive world for women.
