FOR THE WOMAN CAMPAIGN
'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 Ansary, UN Women Global Champion,
“We’re incredibly proud to be part of the #ForTheWoman campaign and to have so many of our amazing colleagues from right across our museum included. As one of few female leaders in my sector, I know too well that while women are often at least 50% of an organisation, this falls off dramatically for more senior positions and absolutely needs to change. By spotlighting the diversity of roles in the female workforce across industries like museums and the arts, armed forces and finance, Deborah and The Women’s Association are making waves to improve visibility, make meaningful change towards gender equality at work and inspire working women everywhere to be the change makers of the future.”

“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.”

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.
