Prime Employers for Women

Where Women Work makes all the difference

International Women's Day (IWD) provides a key moment to celebrate the achievements of women in the workplace and shine a light on the employers supporting them.

While IWD is the biggest employee engagement day of the year, Prime Employers for Women maintain a deep and continuous focus on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) all year round.

Increasingly, organizations worldwide provide progressive policies, practices, benefits and support mechanisms so women's careers can thrive - and these workplaces offer appealing job opportunities. Plus, celebrating the work of women inspires further women to achieve their full potential.
