International Women's Day, is a global event celebrating the achievements of women everywhere. What some people may not know, is that this is a National holiday, celebrated by countries such as Afghanistan, Russia, Nepal, China and Cuba, amongst others. Aggreko recognises that the day primarily symbolises equality, but also unity and action. The event has been occurring all over the world for well over a century now, and continues to grow in strength and awareness.

The theme for this year's campaign is #BeBoldForChange  - taking groundbreaking action that truly drives the greatest change for women. You can learn about the values that underpin the IWD ethos and unifies the tenacity of women everywhere.

 To commemorate the day, Aggreko have interviewed 9 female employees from across the business, who are inspired by the day and want to share their thoughts on what it means to them. You can enjoy and read the interviews below and throughout the week, as we celebrate the day on our various social media platforms. So why not make a positive difference, globally and locally this International Women's Day.
