International Women's Day Speakers

International Women’s Day is a valuable opportunity to empower the female attendees at your event. Every year on the 8th of March, organisations come together to take a stand against discrimination, celebrate pinnacle achievements and promote equal opportunities, with an inspiring female speaker.

Embodying the 2021 theme, #ChooseTo Challenge, the orators featured below will encourage your guests to challenge inequality and nurture an inclusive workplace environment. As only 18% of organisations surveyed had a female CEO, the pressing need for female representation in business spans all industries.
