At Accenture Ireland’s 13th annual celebration of International Women’s Day, we asked about the changes people would like to see for gender equality.

On International Women’s Day, social media lit up with the words ‘Be Bold for Change’, echoing the theme of this year’s campaign to celebrate women while also highlighting continued gender inequality around the world.

At Accenture’s International Women’s Day event in the Convention Centre Dublin, we asked guests and speakers about the changes they have seen and would like to see in support of greater gender balance.

The significance of role models was a recurring theme and Accenture Ireland MD Alastair Blair said of the event: “It’s just become such an important part of the fabric of our business to put role models on stage.”
