Like a boss: Leading ladies inspire in our online chat for IWD2017 (Part 1)

Who run the world? Girls. And it’s not just Queen Bey who’d say so. Not if the bunch of inspiring women – and guys – who joined our blockbuster Women’s Day digi chats had anything to do with the matter.

We were lucky to feature *two* knockout lineups for our chats to celebrate International Women’s Day. In the first, representatives from Lloyds, Oracle, Virgin Media and BP all tuned in to answer questions and inspire our audience with empowering stories of strength, resilience and ambition in the face of challenges (check out the other chat recap here!).

The ladies covered a humungous amount of ground, exploring everything from that pesky gender pay gap and wider inequality to the importance of strong role models and diversity in the workplace. And that was just the warm up.

Below you’ll find some of the highlights and key takeaways. After taking on board the nuggets of advice you’ll be prepped to take on the world of work – and show the patriarchy who’s boss.
