A few words from Sarah Dodsworth for IWD 2021

Happy International Women's Day! Based on this year’s theme #ChooseToChallenge, here's a few words from our Creative Director Sarah Dodsworth:

"International Women's Day celebrates women's ability to meet and surpass the challenges affecting our lives. In the design and construction industry where I work, for example, I would go into meetings as a young designer and, more often than not, would be surrounded by older men. Learning to command the room was a major challenge, especially if someone was intent on belittling me. One of the big lessons I learnt was that equality is not achieved by mirroring such behaviour. Women's emotional intelligence is all about the ability to make others feel 'big' around you, creating more space to grow yourself."
