International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

Diversity in businesses is a proven driver of economic growth, through the Women in Innovation programme we are supporting women to embrace innovation, expand, and continue to grow and develop their own diverse teams. This year in partnership with Innovate UK, for International Women’s Day, we gathered companies and individuals to applaud the achievements of Women in Innovation.

Our IWD online conference, aiming to celebrate women in innovation, was jam-packed with workshops, inspirational speakers and ground-breaking ideas.
