International Women’s Day 2014 - Creating Your Future

International Womens Day 2014


On Friday the 7th of March, Accenture Ireland hosted its 10th annual celebration of International Women’s Day in association with An Cosán.

Guided by leaders across business, education, the arts and technology; the panel reflected, debated and discussed how as individuals and organisations we create our future.

The theme of the event was Creating Your Future and focused on the opportunities afforded by the digital revolution and how better we can all collaborate to encourage science and digital among young women.

The morning combined inspirational speakers across two panels ‘Between Ourselves’ and ‘Destination Digital‘ featuring some key women and men in science, business technology e.g. Bríd Horan Deputy CEO at ESB, Bill Liao, European Venture partner at SOS ventures and Julie Sinnamon CEO Enterprise Ireland. Accenture’s recent research report on attracting more girls to study STEM subjects was a cornerstone of much the morning’s discussion.
