International Women's Day 2022

By: Sinead Kane

Today marks International Women's Day. The theme this year is: Break The Bias. Each day this week I have been invited as a guest speaker for different companies to share my voice about breaking the bias. It began on Sunday speaking at Adare Manor in aid of the Children's Grief Centre then yesterday I spoke for the Offaly Domestic Violence Centre followed by a speech for KSN.

This morning I spoke for CarTrawler. Later today I will speak for a diverse range of companies all of which are committed to breaking the bias that exists in society.

We are all biased in some way. I am biased. Acknowledging it and being willing to grow and learn and make space for difference and value diversity is important. Today is a day to celebrate but it is also a time to reflect on last year and what progress you/the company has made in breaking the bias. Measuring our progress is just one step of many that we can do.

Happy International Women's Day Everyone.
