Celebrating International Women’s Day 2024

Date 2024-03-08

“When we inspire others to understand and value women's inclusion, we forge a better world. And when women themselves are inspired to be included, there’s a sense of belonging, relevance and empowerment. Collectively let’s forge a more inclusive world for women.” ​

This year for international women’s day, we’re celebrating the theme of #inspireinclusion. At Design Bridge and Partners, inclusivity and collaboration are fundamental to our culture, and we’re committed to upholding these values in everything we do. We are constantly working to readdress imbalance - creating an environment where people feel confident to contribute, and different voices are valued, where intuition and empathy are as important as data and deadlines. ​

Today, we’re celebrating some of the brilliant women across our studios, sharing their wisdom and insights to inspire inclusion in others. ​

We asked our people from around the group to share words of experience and advice, from “What does inclusion mean to you?” and “Share a time when you felt a real sense of inclusion”, to “What insights or lessons are there about inclusion from your career and personal experience.” Together with artist Ella Samoles-Little from Accumulate, The Art School for the Homeless, which provides higher-level creative education and empowerment for people affected by homelessness, we then created a series of portraits with illustrated type to help bring those experiences and advice to life.
