International Women’s Day 2020 reminded us that it is important to take time to highlight our achievements and celebrate the success of other women who are working tirelessly to achieve their goals.
We reached out to some former Agent Academy learners who have gone on to successfully develop their own careers in creative and digital businesses across the Liverpool City Region.
We asked them what achievements they are most proud of this year and what quality about themselves they love the most. Let’s take a look at what they said:
1) Jemima Morrow – Development and Operations Coordinator at OPEN Media
2) Katie May – Digital Marketing and Copywriting Freelancer
3) Alex Holloway – Experience Executive (Analytics and UX) at Mando Agency
4) Samantha Riella – Digital Coach at The University of Liverpool
Agent and Agent Academy International Womens Day Celebrations
On Friday, our team at Agent and Agent Academy celebrated International Women’s Day surrounded by around 50 influential female leaders. We heard from some amazing women who spoke about their own experiences and who highlighted that we still have a long way to go to ensure that women are reaching more leadership positions. Our top three takeaways are that we have to be calling out inequality when we see it, be acting as the change we could like to see and, importantly, be unashamedly proud of our successes along the way.
We would like to say a big thank you to those who celebrated with us, to our speakers for inspiring us, and for our male counterparts who continue to champion us in our efforts to achieve a more equitable society for us and for the women who follow us.
