8 March, 2018

Our offices today celebrated International Women's Day 2018 (IWD) and its Press for Progress campaign. Building on the strong global momentum towards gender parity, we joined others in motivating and uniting friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive.

Members of staff and teams from around the company committed to different Press for Progress actions and used pledge boards from the campaign for social media content. The campaign pledges include:

• I/we will #PressforProgress and:
o maintain a gender parity mindset
o challenge stereotypes and bias
o forge positive visibility of women
o influence others' beliefs / actions
o celebrate women's achievements

Four is committed to gender equality and recently set up a Four Gender Equality group to oversee company initiatives in this area. We are also renaming at least half of our meeting rooms after inspirational women communicators including Rosa Parks, Emmeline Pankhurst, J.K. Rowling, Marie Curie and Zaha Hadid.
