'Raising the visibility of women in every sphere is vital to empowering women and achieving gender parity. It takes an accumulation of role models – real-life examples of what girls and women can do if given the opportunity – to change entrenched attitudes."
Dr Nina Ansary,
UN Women Global Champion
It's great to be put forward for this campaign. If you can do anything to inspire future generations and just generally highlighting women at all levels is a good thing. It's important we raise female profiles
CARRIE MURRAY / CULTURE MANAGER / MOTHER
“This partnership is close to all of our hearts at McCann. We all talk about investing in the next generation of female talent but that starts well before recruitment. We have to work with girls and young women to understand what they want out of a career today and how we as business leaders can build an environment that is safe and inspiring for all. It is a privilege to be working with The Women’s Association. Exciting times ahead.”
JESSICA TAMSEDGE / CHIEF CLIENT OFFICER / MCCANN WORLDGROUP
I'm really honoured and truly humbled to be part of this campaign. If there is anyone that is looking up at other female figures doing well in their careers and looks to me as an inspiration. I think that's amazing, I think there needs to be far more females in society spotlighted.
ANNABELLE WALTERS / HEAD OF PEOPLE - EMEA & GLOBAL CLIENTS / OLIVER
We were always told that you're a lawyer or a doctor and that's it, but that obviously isn't the case and I've seen this throughout my career journey, so it means a lot to be spotlighted against so many different women doing so many different things and hopefully there are people that will be inspired by it.

“I’m pleased to be a part of the #ForTheWoman campaign and to play a part in raising the profile of women in the workplace. I’m confident the campaign will raise much needed awareness around the diversity of roles out there and encourage a younger generation of women to have the confidence to step in to the leadership roles they deserve.”
TINA LAI / MANAGING LEGAL COUNSEL - FUND DISTRIBUTION / COLUMBIA THREADNEEDLE
We all need role models to look up to. Seeing someone that looks like you being successful in any field allows us to believe in possibilities. Especially when it comes to leadership where women in senior roles are a rarity. As a mother to a daughter, I want my child to grow up thinking she can achieve anything with the merit of her work and not have to navigate the barriers of culture, race or gender to simply keep pace with others.
BABLY BEGUM / TEAM LEADER - NEW BUSINESS / PARAGON BANK
“I’m really proud and honoured to be a part of the #ForTheWoman campaign and to play a part in raising the profile of women in the workplace. The only way to tackle the imbalance of women in leadership positions is to more openly celebrate the amazing work we do, to continue breaking down barriers for women in work and to champion the great talent that exists in every organisation. I hope this campaign can encourage women to have confidence in their abilities so they can achieve amazing things, no matter who they are or what their job is.”
