Highlights from a Celebration of International Women’s Day

#IWD2023 #EmbraceEquity

Our exclusive in-person Think Women event ‘Inspiring Global Women for Growth’ took place 10 March in London to celebrate International Women’s Day 2023.

Hosted at the prestigious Institute of Directors (IoD) London, in the stunning Waterloo and Nash Rooms the event brought leaders together from across the international business and global mobility community. The focus was to explore how to accelerate change and drive equity, particularly for international women in business.

“Great to meet and hear the stories of so many brilliant women. Thank you Fiona Murchie for hosting such a wonderful event and I look forward to having the opportunity to attend more in the future”


Hear from our Keynote Speakers and Panellists from the day, talking about how to move the dial and accelerate growth for women, particularly in international leadership roles.

Our Speaker – Julia Palmer, COO of Relo at Santa Fe Relocation — spoke about the additional pressure on women when taking overseas assignments.

“Realising that female assignees are still expected to do a lot of the moving—and having the help and support to do this is crucial”

“I felt inspired to create positive ripples and to take action starting from small steps in my career as well as in my personal life.”


The event was host to inspiring women who are making a difference. An impactful workshop in the morning featured stories from our keynote speakers about their personal and professional journey, and their passion for supporting women and girls. It was a discovery of their hopes for the future of work and a more equitable world.


Our guests networked across diverse industry sectors, organisations, countries and cultures. They took away a wealth of connections, new ideas and practical solutions to put into practice in their own workplace.

‘Moving the Dial on gender equity’ Workshop

We started the day with an interactive workshop with contributions from our motivational guest speakers – who, through shared stories, provoked discussion around Think Women’s role in ‘moving the dial and accelerating growth for women in international roles’.

Journalist Marianne Curphey interviewed guests including Caroline Thorley-Farrer, Group Global Mobility Director at Worley, Jenny Hinde, Executive Director, The Clear Company, Salma Shah, founder of Mastering Your Power and Julia Palmer, COO Relocation & CHRO, Santa Fe Relocation.

Taking an international assignment early in a woman’s career offers a huge career advantage and a lot of experience in terms of understanding different cultures and ways of working. — Roundtable feedback

Guests exchanged  insights and experiences and together we scoped out how Think Women can best support international women to flourish in the fast-changing global workplace.
