International Women's Day 2022 | News | Procurement Hub

Each year, International Women's Day is celebrated across the globe on 8 March. It's seen as an opportunity to raise awareness of inequality and show support for and celebrate women’s achievements.

Celebrating women's achievements and increasing visibility, while calling out inequality, is key in helping to forge a gender equal world. 

At Procurement Hub we love to celebrate all our colleagues and their achievements. Today seems like the perfect opportunity to celebrate our Operations Manager, Sophie Quenby who recently completed her Level 5 Leadership and Management course achieving a distinction. Sophie has shared her experience of taking part in the apprenticeship:    

“I have found that the apprenticeship has given me the tools and skills to develop as a more confident manager. I have organically grown into a manager, and I now feel that I am more capable within my role. I feel that I have developed the knowledge to better understand myself and my team and therefore lead in a more successful way. 

“Over the course my biggest learning has been about self-belief. It’s invaluable the impact having knowledge and skills can have on confidence in any role. Learning and understanding about me as a person has had the biggest impact.  

“I have enjoyed learning again and realising that at no point in any role everyone knows everything. Progression and growth are based on learning and development.” 

The theme for this year's International Women's Day is Break the Bias. Whether deliberate or unconscious, bias makes it difficult for women to move ahead. Knowing that bias exists isn’t enough, action is needed to level the playing field. Positive visibility of women can help create a world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination to forge a world for that is diverse, equitable, inclusive and equal for women.

Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias.
