International Womens Day

International Women’s Day

Here at Sesame Bankhall Group (SBG), we believe in building a world that’s safe and supportive for everyone – no matter their experiences, their identities or their backgrounds.

That’s why we’re celebrating International Women’s Day by dedicating all of March to focus on the effects of what has been called "the great equaliser": the COVID-19 pandemic.

COVID-19: the gendered experience

With lockdowns, business closures and limited social interaction, there's no doubt that the last 12 months have been challenging for every single one of us. But chances are, if you're a woman, you've faced specific challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

To explore these challenges, take a look at our infographic that breaks down the trends that are happening globally.

Watch: Michele Golunska Talks Equality, Diversity And Inclusion

Throughout March, we’ve been celebrating International Women’s Day. This month, we’ve placed the focus on women’s experiences during the pandemic, and the ways in which pre-existing inequalities, prejudices and bias have led to specific challenges that have been disproportionately experienced by women.

Now, to round off the month, we’ve caught-up with SBG’s CEO Michele Golunska, to get her thoughts on the broader issues facing gender equality. Michele shares her own experiences as a female leader in a man’s world, and shares further details on some of the initiatives SBG is undertaking to help improve equality in the workplace.
