Five women working at Aon across the globe marked International Women’s Day this year by sharing their #ChooseToChallenge pledges.

The theme of this year’s International Women’s Day was #ChooseToChallenge – encouraging both men and women to challenge gender bias and inequality, to celebrate women’s achievements, and to help create an inclusive world.

To mark the day, we spoke to five women working in tech at Aon about how they have fared over the past year and what they are pledging to challenge in the year ahead.

Data scientist Aebhín O’Hara Kiernan pledged to “put people first by working collaboratively to create meaningful solutions together”. And Margarita Farfán, a business intelligence visualisation developer at the company, pledged to “maintain a gender-equal mindset”.
