Here at IFA Magazine, International Women’s Day brings us the perfect opportunity to zone in and fire up our inner ‘girl power’ (never something we find that difficult if we’re honest!).

Tomorrow, March 8th, people around the world – us included -will be celebrating International Women’s Day.

Women in the spotlight

Throughout this week we will be shining our editorial spotlight in celebration of the work of just some of the many brilliant women who are making a difference right across the UK financial services spectrum – and no doubt  – to a business, family unit, friendship group or community near you too.

Whether you’re male or female matters not one jot in the context of our editorial focus this week. What does matter is that we can all recognise each individual’s abilities, contributions and potential as well as the benefits that we all reap by harnessing the power of diversity in all aspects of our work and lives. That regardless of our gender, religion, race, sexuality or any other one of the aspects which make us the person we really are, that opportunity and freedom of choice is open to us all.

Whether deliberate or unconscious, bias makes it difficult for women to move ahead. Knowing that bias exists isn’t enough, action is needed to level the playing field. We hope that the conversations we can bring you this week will encourage more women into this fantastic profession and to give impetus to many more who are already involved to strive for the career progression they deserve. We say a big thank you to everyone who has shared their views with us this week.

It’s good to talk

Throughout this week the IFA Magazine team and I will be sharing with you many blogs and articles highlighting personal stories and views of just some of the women who are in leadership positions helping to drive growth as well as diversity and inclusion in many of the UK’s leading organisations.

Our coverage starts today, and I hope that you’ll follow us throughout the week here on IFA Magazine website via the IWD2022 tab at the top of our home page, or via our social media channels by Following IFA Magazine on LinkedIn and on Twitter @IFAMagazine.
