To celebrate International Women’s Day, The Guardian has compiled a list of the top 100 most inspirational and influential women in the world – many of whom are consummate and experienced corporate speakers, and available to book through Speakers Corner.
The notable list includes Martha Lane Fox, Karren Brady, Tanni Grey-Thompson, Kelly Holmes and Ellen MacArthur, all taking on their role as speakers to rouse and energize women throughout the country to follow their dreams.
International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women. In some countries like China, Russia, Vietnam and Bulgaria, International Women's Day is a national holiday.
The new millennium has witnessed a significant change in both women's and society's thoughts about women's equality and emancipation.
With more women in the boardroom, greater equality in legislative rights, and an increased critical mass of women's visibility as impressive role models in every aspect of life, IWD celebrates the widely believed theory that women are on their way to gaining true equality.
