International Women's Day

1Since 1975 the United Nations has been celebrating International Women’s Day on 8 March. It was first marked in the US on 28 February 1909 in honour of the garment worker’s strike in New York where women protested against their working conditions. This year’s theme is: rural and urban activists transforming women’s lives #PressforProgress. This is to celebrate social, cultural, economic and political successes of women globally - and especially this year - to promote an improvement in the livelihoods and wellbeing of rural women, who 2make up over a quarter of the world’s population, but still fare worse off than rural men and urban women. Less than 20% of landholders worldwide are women.

Walkgrove are celebrating!

Our star Social Media Apprentice, Mia Lewis, has been shortlisted for the prestigious Enterprising Women’s Apprentice of the Year award. The Enterprising Women’s awards highlight the achievements of women-in-business. The Apprentice of the Year award in particular looks to find an entrant who has brought something different to the business, qualifications they have achieved while still completing their apprenticeship framework and any outcomes that have been implemented as a direct result of the entrant’s contribution. Walkgrove is convinced that Mia is a deserving candidate.
