inspiring change

Each year, the selected theme for International Women's Day provides food for thought on how to encourage women's advancement in the world. For 2014, the theme, Inspiring Change, falls in line with the pressures to change that I've witnessed in the business environment in recent years. In particular, one recurring hot topic has been Changes in Mobility, and the challenges and opportunities businesses and employees face.
The first International Women's Day (IWD), aimed at both celebrating the extraordinary social, political and economic achievements of women, and directing a spotlight on areas requiring further action, was observed in 1911 at a time when family planning services were extremely limited.
