Today marks International Women’s Day, an event observing the political, economic and cultural achievements of women all over the world.
The 2017 theme – marked globally by performances, talks and marches – is #BeBoldForChange. People are being encouraged to take groundbreaking action to help improve gender equality. It’s a particularly resonant topic with divisive politics pushing many to march for women’s rights this year.
As the CEO / owner of a legal services business, I’ve never felt my gender has held me back in my career. I’m a firm believer that if you empower yourself you can take control of your own destiny. I know Clare Stevens, Director, board member and shareholder here at Hilary Meredith Solicitors feels the same. My passion has always been law and fighting for justice for those who can’t fight for themselves. If you are passionate about what you do and never give up, you will always succeed.
