International Women's Day

International Women's Day celebrates the social, political and economic achievements of women while focusing world attention on areas requiring further action.

Inspiring Change is the 2014 theme for our internationalwomensday.com global hub and encourages advocacy for women's advancement everywhere in every way. It calls for challenging the status quo for women's equality and vigilance inspiring positive change.

50ft Women is a cross-industry mentoring programme for women in the workplace. The programme includes formal mentoring training for senior-level professionals, one-to-one mentoring sessions and regular whole-group events to equip female mentees with the necessary skills, confidence and networks they need to succeed.

Developed by Counterpoint , 50ft Women aims to raise awareness and address these problems by providing the time, support and guidance needed to understand an industry, build professional support networks, sharpen career goals, plot paths, allay fears and build confidence.
