With International Women’s Day only a few short weeks away, we can’t wait to announce the fabulous companies who will be supporting our campaign and making it possible. First up, BDO!
We are thrilled to have the support of BDO, the multi-disciplined chartered accountancy firm, on this coming International Women’s Day. With 24 partners, 275 staff in its Dublin office, as well as offices and affiliates in both Limerick and Belfast, BDO is the perfect ambassador to help spread awareness this International Women’s Day surrounding issues facing female employees in workplaces throughout Ireland. We are so grateful for not only their support but also for their creative and interactive engagement with this year’s campaign – we can’t wait to see the success of their event!
For 2018, BDO is embracing the international theme for IWD – #PressforProgress. The purpose of the BDO IWD internal event this year is to give all employees an opportunity to come together to mark the occasion in a fun and insightful way, by holding a makeover event in their Dublin office on Thursday, 8th March.
For BDO, this event, in partnership with Dress for Success, is an opportunity for employees to recognise how portraying a professional image both in dress and behaviour is a key part of career progression. To this end, two lucky BDO staff members will be treated to a full make up and styling makeover, with the audience able to watch and take tips on the best way to ‘Dress for Success’. We are eagerly awaiting some before and after photos!
On top of this, BDO will also be supporting Dress for Success by running a clothing donation campaign throughout the event, to ensure their support is felt long after Thursday, 8th March.
Thank you so much, BDO, for such generous sponsorship – here’s to a fun, informative and proactive International Women’s Day!
