Inkerman's Inspirational Women

Inkerman's Inspirational Women

With International Women’s Day fast approaching what better time is there to celebrate some of the wonderful women out there? The theme for this year's International Women’s Day is ‘balance for better,’ with the focus on how we can create better gender balance in the workplace. It’s not just looking at how women can be treated more fairly, but for everyone, male or female, to feel equal, and that they are given the same opportunities, rates of pay, and respect in the workplace, regardless of what it is they do for a living.

At Inkerman, we couldn’t agree more with this mentality and feel proud that we have cultivated a mindset in our offices, as well as with all the different and brilliant businesses we work with, that all people are treated fairly and well. We believe this makes for a happier, healthier and more productive workforce, and what business owner wouldn’t want that?

Since it is International Women’s Day, we find ourselves thinking about some of the women who we find genuinely inspirational. All these women are successful, influential and smart and are not only brilliant businesspeople but also gifted, passionate and compassionate too.
