Celebrating International Women’s Day 2024: Inspire Inclusion

     As the world gears up to celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8, 2024, there’s an air of anticipation and excitement. It’s a day dedicated to honoring the achievements of women, raising awareness about gender equality, and advocating for inclusivity in all spheres of life. And what better way to mark this significant occasion than by coming together at the International Women’s Day Breakfast event, hosted by LEO Wexford and County Wexford Chamber?


Inspire Inclusion

This year’s theme, ‘Inspire Inclusion,’ resonates deeply in a world where diversity and equality are not just buzzwords but fundamental pillars of progress. We are thrilled to announce Catherine Vaughan, Partner at Ernst & Young, as our keynote speaker. Catherine’s remarkable journey as a leader in her field, coupled with her dedication to promoting inclusivity as the sponsor and chair of EY’s LQBT+ network, makes her a true inspiration. Being named one of the 100 OUTstanding Global Executives for the fifth consecutive year speaks volumes about her commitment to fostering a more inclusive world.

Inclusion isn’t just about ticking boxes or meeting quotas; it’s about creating a culture where every individual feels valued, respected, and empowered to contribute their best. When women are included, not only do they thrive, but entire communities and societies flourish. It’s a ripple effect that leads to greater innovation, productivity, and social cohesion.

Our event aims to celebrate the strides made in women’s rights and empowerment while also acknowledging the work that still lies ahead. Through insightful discussions, networking opportunities, and a panel session on ‘Diversity as a Personal & Business Resource,’ we seek to ignite meaningful conversations and drive actionable change. From championing women in leadership roles to fostering diversity within organisations, each of us has a role to play in building a more inclusive future.

The venue for this auspicious occasion is The Talbot Hotel, Wexford, where we will gather from 8am to 11am. The agenda is packed with engaging activities, including a breakfast buffet, welcoming remarks from esteemed speakers such as Breege Cosgrave from LEO Wexford and Deirdre O’Flynn from County Wexford Chamber, and of course, Catherine Vaughan’s keynote address on ‘Inclusivity Is Your Business.’

We encourage everyone, regardless of gender, to join us in celebrating International Women’s Day 2024. Let’s make this day one to remember as we collectively strive to create a more inclusive world for women and all marginalized groups. Together, let’s inspire inclusion and pave the way for a brighter, more equitable future.

See you there!
