Each year IWD runs a campaign. This year it is ‘Press for Progress’ which relates to gender equality pay.”

On 8 March staff will be able to enjoy a buffet lunch in the main boardroom of each office will be provided with Selfie Cards and Posters so they can express opinions on the issues during lunch.

The event is being organised by Thursfields’ Equal Allies Committee, which has a representative in each office.
