International Women’s Day: celebrating women across the media

International Women's Day

Many divisions of the media are still male-dominated and even those with a larger number of female employees still suffer from a lack of women in high-level management roles.

There are a few different groups and organisations across the UK that support women in media roles and provide mentoring schemes, networking opportunities and advice to help ladies thrive.
