International Women’s Day

We advised Manchester, UK on how to celebrate International Women’s Day, making it accessible to women across the city.

Women and girls across the world have been celebrating International Women’s Day – 8 March for over 100 years. Each year women across the world gather together to celebrate achievements and inspire one another.

Manchester has celebrated the event for over 20 years; and in 2013 we helped advise them on how to make it even bigger and better than before. The theme was women and girls in STEM – science, technology, engineering and mathematics – still vitally important as the contribution in these areas is vastly underestimated and women and girls are still unrepresented in these career.

One of the key events was an IWD Women’s Awards held in celebration of women in business, art, culture, science, sport in Manchester; as well as a category for outstanding young woman and valuing older women awards.
