International Women's Day 2022

​On Tuesday 8th March 2022, Sphere Solutions in partnership with BAM Construction and Chwarae Teg, hosted an afternoon tea with 40 women from across the construction and charity sectors at Sphere's headquarters in Cardiff. Jess Morgan from BAM provided some key facts from Chwarae Teg's latest "State of the Nation report 2022" highlighting some quite shocking statistics about women! We were thrilled to have Charlotte Wathan as our guest speaker for the afternoon who talked to us about the challenges she has faced throughout her career in a male dominated industry - sport. Some of the comments she has received from male colleagues were ones that a lot of the women in the room could relate too. Everyone was nodding in agreement throughout her talk and all came away with a fire in their belly to do more, not take no for answer and learn to interrupt! All agreed that it was a fantastic afternoon, long overdue due to the pandemic and that we dont need to wait for IWD to have a get together. Further events will be organised throughout the year to build on the success of this one but most importantly, so that we can continue to strengthen our positions in society.
