Female leaders inspire us every day, here are just some of those who have helped #breakthebias
It’s never been more important to mark International Women’s Day (IWD). Gender equality could have been put back by 25 years because of the pandemic, according to UN Women. Its global data suggested women have shouldered more of the family care and domestic chores that came about as a result of more of us being at home. We wanted to celebrate trailblazing women in technology, luxury lifestyle, gaming and the world of giving back. We hope they – and their words – inspire you as much as they inspire the team at Ambassadeurs Group.
