Simpsons and International Women’s Day

An equal world is an enabled world.

That’s the theme of this year’s International Women’s Day held on March 8th. It’s an event that has been celebrated for well over a century, but there’s still just as much importance on recognising and championing women today as there was back in 1911.

But how can we all work together to forge a gender equal world and celebrate women’s achievements?

At Simpsons we’re passionate about making a better world and working environment for women, through women.

Our Simpsons Cheltenham team is passionately led by Bonny and we’re proud of our five intelligent, kind, empowering female managers who help run a tight ship during busy periods.

The fish and chips industry is a progressive one, supporting women across the UK and helping to shine a light on equality.

It was great to see the UK’s first ever Women in Fish and Chips event organised by national wholesaler JJ Food Service earlier this year. The event encouraged female chippies to meet others in the industry, share experiences and shape their business networks.

However we shouldn’t just rely on women supporting women.

We should all look to empower, inspire and support each other to collectively make a change towards a gender equal world. #EachforEqual
