Sandra Egan, Partner, organised a HOMS Solicitors celebration for International Women’s Day on Thursday 8th March 2018.
The global theme for International Women’s Day 2018 is #PressforProgress. Gender parity and diversity from an educational, social and economic perspective is a significant global issue. There is now, more than ever, a strong call to action to press forward and progress gender parity. #PressforProgress aims to motivate and unite friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive.
We honoured the theme of International Women’s Day 2018 by holding a lunch at our Limerick and Dublin offices for all of our personnel. Everyone was asked to wear something violet, with prizes going to the best outfit or accessory in both the female and male categories.
Last year’s event was used to kick start a new community based initiatives to seek to achieve greater equality from a social and educational perspective. We held a transition year law day at Ardscoil Mhuire, a Dress for Success Event to assist women going back to work and we continue to welcome various motivational speakers in-house to inspire all of our personnel.
