The 8 March 2020 is International Women’s Day (IWD) and BDO Global have prepared the attached report to celebrate this day.  BDO is #eachforequal. 

Equality is not a women’s issue, it’s a business issue.  It is essential for economies and communities to thrive.  An equal world is an enabled world.

For IWD, BDO have reflected on what diversity and equality means to us and have asked some of our female leaders and young talents how they have navigated (and overcome) potential barriers and challenges to pursuing their careers.  We have also examined BDO statistics, which show that overall, across all regions, women already occupy more than 50% of our workforce, but climbing the career ladder remains a challenge.  Many inspiring initiatives are being taken, but there is still a lot of work to be done.
