As International Women’s Day approaches, we’re honouring the wisest women we know…

The #MeToo and Time’s Up movements have triggered an intensely powerful outpouring of testimony and solidarity among people around the world.

But this is only the beginning of the story. The broader issues of systemic workplace sexism and the fight for meaningful inclusion undeniably stretch far beyond the entertainment world.

We need look no further than our own backyard where women account for just 20-35 per cent of procurement association memberships, represent just 30 per cent of attendees and 20 per cent of speakers, and earn up to 31 per cent less than their male counterparts.

At Procurious, we believe time is most definitely up for our own profession to tackle this issue and celebrate more fully the dynamite contributions made by talented women to their businesses and to the profession.

A Wise Woman Once Told Me…

Ahead of International Women’s Day on 8th March 2018 Procurious are running a new campaign, “A Wise Woman Once Told Me…”

We’re asking procurement professionals across the globe to join in by finishing that sentence and sharing the best advice a woman has ever given them.

How to take part:

  1. Enroll to join the Bravo group above

  2. Download your Wise Woman kit here and finish the sentence by sharing the best advice you’ve ever been given by a woman - be it a colleague, mentor, friend or family member

  3. Share your advice on both Twitter - tagging @Procurious_ and #Bravoprocurement - and in the Bravo group on Procurious

  4. Please share the campaign with your colleagues and peers by passing on your Wise Women kit and encouraging them to share their best advice with the global procurement community

We promise to donate £1 to Action Aid - a charity committed to ending the inequality that keeps women and girls locked in poverty - for every person that joins Bravo before 12th March 2018. Simply enroll above.
