Emma Jobling, Head of the Cobweb Team, writes …

With the first IWD held in 1911, International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated annually on 8 March, and celebrates "the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity," (International Women’s Day).

It’s fantastic to be celebrating International Women’s Day together as a group here at Cobweb.

Having worked in the IT industry for over 25 years, it’s been great to see the progress that some companies in the industry have made towards inclusivity and equal rights, although I recognise there is still a long way to go.

From my perspective, Cobweb embraces this progression and could not be more supportive of me and my career in the 18 months I have worked for them, and of the other women who have been recruited into the company, and working across the business in various departments.

I work alongside some amazing and talented men and women who provide me with the support and encouragement to succeed in what is still a very male-dominated industry, and as a company we are going from strength to strength.

It’s wonderful to know that women across the world are marking this special day.
