International Women's Day was marked in style by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) as it hosted a special event with AIB in Greenacres. Some 80 people arrived to celebrate the achievements of women in business and to call for gender equality.
The day provided an opportunity for women to celebrate their achievements and commemorate the sacrifices of women in their struggle to achieve gender equality. Addressing the event, Lisa Cliffe, a senior manager in the tax and legal department in PwC, remarked that while women have much to celebrate it is important to recognise that inequalities still exist. In particular, she noted that a gender pay gap continues to exist and that women are still seriously unrepresented both politically and at executive board level.
Attendees on the night were treated to insights from Elaine Fennelly, Founder and CEO of Crystal Valley Tech, Aoife Miskella, Nutritional Therapist with the Bodhi Clinic, and AnneMarie Nagle, Personal Stylist.
As a firm, PwC is committed to celebrating International Women's Day, acknowledging that gender equality is an economic and social imperative which must certainly be addressed.
