Women on Walls

“The contribution of women in society is too often invisible. Who we see on the walls, tells us about what we as a society value, about who is welcome, about who fits in. We set out on the journey of Women on Walls with the ambition of making women leaders visible to inspire future generations.”

— Dr Michelle Cullen, Managing Director and Head of Inclusion & Diversity, Accenture in Ireland
