What is Women’s History Month?

Women’s History Month is an annual celebration that focuses and highlights the contributions of women to historical and important events. The month also provides an opportunity for reflection on the achievements of women and is a time to also understand issues women are still facing today and discuss how to challenge and overcome these obstacles such as equal pay and women’s rights.   

How are Chambers and Partners working to tackle these issues?

As a business, Chambers and Partners continues to work towards the reduction of gender inequality by monitoring data in relation to the Gender Pay Gap, organizing internal events, podcasts and focus groups to spread awareness on gender inequality, as well as broadening talent pool and ensuring gender balance at all stages of the hiring and promotion processes.
