It is important organisations use International Women’s Day to highlight effort and advances being made throughout the year to improve the representation of women at all levels. Choose to Challenge is an excellent theme, it takes courage for women and men to challenge accepted norms, established ways of operating or the outdated ideas of their colleagues particularly in positions of authority.

In our increasingly dynamic working environments where creating the right culture, leading by example and optimising the skills of the entire workforce is key, I am confident that those who do challenge will be noticed and rewarded and be surprised by the support they can quickly attract for change. Be a catalyst and start the conversations which improve the diversity of your organisation and enhance its prospects of success.
