International Women’s Day 2023

International Women’s Day 2023

International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

The British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) worked with leading panel provider Find Out Now to conduct a landmark survey of more than 4,100 respondents.

The survey, the first of its kind from the BCC, looks at the perceived impact childcare, general caring responsibilities and menopause have on a person’s career, as well as the support available to those impacted by the issues.

On International Women’s Day, the BCC will publish the results from survey and launch a three-year gender equity campaign based on stark research findings.

Take a look at the BCC website for more information.

Levelling Up for Women in the Workplace

The BCC is committed to facing these challenges head on by levelling up for women in the workplace, through an urgent three-year Chamber campaign.

The campaign will be based on a three-point plan, to include:

1 . Short-term action: Convene employment experts, Chamber CEOs and employers to create a Chamber Workplace Equity Commission 

2. Medium-term work: The commission to analyse research findings and case studies, to develop policies for Government and best practices for businesses enshrining equity in the workplace.

3.Long-term goal: Re-run the same survey with the aim of moving the dial on the findings we are publishing today.
