Sisters Are Doin’ It For Themselves, and Each Other
With International Women’s Day coming up on Sunday 8th March, we are taking the time to appreciate the women in our lives. It’s a day for all us – women and men – to celebrate the things we, and our female friends, family, colleagues have achieved and continue to strive for.
The first formal International Women’s Day was over 100 years ago in 1911, when millions of people turned out to rallies across Europe demand better workplace conditions, equal rights, equal pay, and an end to exploitation. In 1975 – International Women’s Year – the United Nations declared that International Women’s Day on 8th March.
This year, the theme for IWD is ‘I am Generation Equality: Realising Women’s Rights’ – in support of UN Women’s new multigenerational campaign, Generation Equality. As a company, icubed consulting strives to continue to empower and provide equal opportunities for our female Engineers, Designers, Town Planners, Accountants, Project Managers and Administration personnel. With 30% female employment in roles across all disciplines, we are proud to be supporting women in an industry classically led by men.
