Bermuda will celebrate International Women’s Day on Tuesday, 8 March, 2016, and Wakefield Quin is pleased to be a corporate sponsor. The events held at City Hall beginning at 11:45 a.m. will benefit the Women’s Resource Centre (see link for programme schedule).

Wakefield Quin Managing Director Nicholas Hoskins commented “International Women’s Day is a terrific opportunity to celebrate the contributions that women make to the Bermuda community, not just professionally, but also in their contributions to family, education, and to political, religious, sport, cultural, and charitable organisations. We realise that there is still work to be done to achieve balance amongst demands in the lives of women in Bermuda, and we would like to encourage and promote opportunities for discussion on the empowerment of women and gender equality.”

International Women’s Day and the theme “Planet 50-50 by 2030: Step It Up for Gender Equality” is observed by the United Nations and celebrated on 8th March across the globe.
