Could you be the one to take the first step?

This weekend brings International Women’s Day and activities around the world this week are raising the profile of women who are being ignored.

What would you do if you knew you wouldn’t be ignored?

Would you stand up for something?

One of the most inspirational people the world has ever seen was seamstress Rosa Parks, who simply took a seat on a bus and refused to give it up.

She said: “I knew someone had to take the first step and I made up my mind not to move.”

In business especially, we are more powerful than we know. As women in business, we can make changes and today is a good day to assess our place in the world. Does your business stand for something?

What would make you stand up (or sit down)?
