Happy International Women’s Day

This year’s International Women’s Day celebrates the theme: #BalanceforBetter.

Many of our works are built around women’s safety and wellbeing in the community. We appreciate the support from all the women we have worked with. The wish to serve our community will continue to motivate us. 

Here we select some of the exciting events in London, Manchester, Sheffield and Birmingham. Keep an eye on the official website of IWD (https://www.internationalwomensday.com/) and search for the events in your city.
