International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women.  

Marked annually on March 8th, International Women's Day (IWD) is one of the most important days of the year to celebrate women's achievements and raise awareness about women's equality

This year, to mark IWD, the Ireland Chapter of PMI is hosting a panel discussion on the theme "The Way it Was, The Way it Is, The Way it Should be"

We want our panel discussion to celebrate and increase visibility of women's achievements to help forge equality and create an environment of continuous positive change for women

As such, we have invited four women to join our panel who represent a variety of backgrounds and success stories, to share their journey with us.  

Our MC for the event is Taragh Loughrey Grant, who will guide the panel discussion.
