International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day has been celebrated for more than 100 years and this year its theme of #BeBoldForChange to help forge a better working world – a more gender inclusive world shows how the effort is becoming more aggressive in a politically volatile environment.
The communications industry has long been dominated by female employees with men serving in most of the top leadership roles. There have been numerous blogs on that topic so rather than rehash, I’d like to focus on the positive.
I was fortunate to be included in The PR Council’s video round up of women CEOs. The topics discussed by my fellow CEOs range from mentors, to career paths. While I believe the insights pertain to both men and women, I hope women will be inspired to find their role models, create their own paths and pay it forward by sharing their success stories.
