Women’s stories – in their own words

Through our work we meet many inspiring women – women who are working hard to find the right balance between work and life so they can live happy, fulfilled lives that are right for them. All of our featured women are real women like you or I, juggling the pressures of life as a working woman everyday.

So here we share the stories of some of the women who inspire us.
