As we approach International Women’s Day on Sunday, 8 March, I’d like to take this opportunity to reflect on just how far we’ve progressed since the first recognised National Women’s Day was observed in New York in 1909. We should be proud that the modern professional workplace is unrecognisable to the ones inhabited by the day’s first observants.

When International Women’s Day (IWD) arrives on 8 March every year, it gives us a timely opportunity to reflect on female achievements and the progress that has already been made in attaining global gender equality. Moreover, it encourages business leaders to be proactive in accelerating this goal in the years ahead.
