  • Vodafone launches powerful #ConnectedSheCan campaign
    Supporting International Women's Day and showing strong commitment to gender equality, Vodafone leads when it comes to gender diversity and equality in the workplace and connecting women to reach their full potential. Vodafone has launched a programme to recruit career-break women and will hire 1,000 people worldwide in frontline and managerial roles. The Connect campaign also aims to provide 50-million women in developing countries with phones and access to technology, which will help them start businesses, access information to further their careers and access healthcare.
  • Western Union says #TheRaceIsOn
    Education has the power to change women's lives, and moving money helps fuel this change. Western Union is collaborating with International Women's Day once again to support and champion a bolder generation of women through education. We at Western Union believe good things happen when money moves, and moving money to fund women's education is hugely important. Knowledge and skills empower girls and women, helping to unlock true potential.
  • Avon donates nearly £2 million to counter domestic violence
    Avon marks International Women's Day with the Avon Foundation's most significant contribution yet to tackling domestic abuse in support of the #BeBoldForChange initiative. The Avon Foundation is donating nearly £2 million to provide practical help, advice and support for women in need.
