What is covered 

The UN theme for this year’s IWD Invest in women: accelerate progress brings up some important questions. Hear from us about the argument for and against investing in women, specifically addressing:

  • Why we’re using the UN IWD theme (Invest in Women: Accelerate Progress) rather than the commercial IWD theme (Inspire Inclusion), and how the two themes came about 
  • Why are we still talking about investing in women in the UK and Europe in 2024? 
  • Why investing in women is crucial for business 
  • Does investing in women discriminate against men? 
  • The ripple effect of investing in women 
  • 7 things organisations can do to invest in women (in business and beyond) 

Join us for this important conversation and find out how your organisation can be doing more to invest in women.
