Welcome to our newsletter -
March 2020 edition
 
 
It's March and I'm relishing the lighter evenings, the flowers starting to bloom and the awakening of nature after the long, wet, winter.
With a spring in my step, earlier this month, I addressed a group of MBA students and I was delighted to see so much enthusiasm for Diversity and Inclusion, so I'm sharing with you some of the topics that came up for "robust" discussion at our meeting. 

Our advice column, Active Voice, offers tips on how to bridge the generation gaps in the multi-generational workplace. Our editorial explores Melinda Gates's view that if you're born a woman you're destined to face inequality. We introduce you to our guest blogger Christine Locher, who challenges traditional gender stereotypes and our featured video of the month considers the dangers of labelling. 

Enjoy - and remember, sharing is caring!

 
Rina.

Celebrate #IWD2020 with Tracy Edwards  
 
 

Watch this incredible, against-all-odds story of sailor Tracy Edwards, who skippered the first all-female international crew in the 1989 Whitbread Round the World Yacht Race. Tracy’s dream was opposed on all sides: her male competitors thought an all-women crew would never make it, the chauvinistic yachting press took bets on her failure, and potential sponsors rejected her, fearing they would die at sea and generate bad publicity, but Tracy refused to give up.

Our friends from UN Women invite you to the United Nations Cinema screening of Maiden at the British Museum in the presence of Tracy Edwards, MBE, on 14th March at the British Museum  and hear Tracy speak. Showtime is 3pm.

Editorial
Are Women Born Unequal?  

 

 “No matter where in the world you are born, your life will be harder if you are born a girl”, according to Melinda Gates. In the month that we celebrate International Women’s Day, I thought it timely to consider the magnitude of this woeful predicament.
