ON Wednesday (8 March), the world came together to mark International Women’s Day, and Lakeside Shopping Centre joined in celebration with its workforce of united women.
From housekeeping to management, the centre invited its team onto the mall for a rare photo opportunity to highlight its strength on women’s rights and equal opportunities. A video was also created by Lakeside that includes several female retail staff reading out a poem, which can be viewed here:
Susan Williamson, Marketing Manager at Lakeside said: “We are incredibly proud of every woman that works in Lakeside. International Women’s Day gives us a platform to truly highlight our achievements, recognise our progress as women but also strive for more.
“The support we have received has been fantastic and we hope this inspires other women to aim ‘big’ and break through any barriers they may face. The retail industry is an excellent place to establish a career and there are many inspiring female entrepreneurs within it that have reached the top, and we know there will be many more to come.”
