International Women’s Month
We’re on a mission to create a fairer global network at Clarks. And to make change happen, we #EmbraceEquity – recognising that we all have unique circumstances and often don’t start our journeys the same way. Each of us needs different support and resources to level the playing field and make authentic, lasting progress.
This International Women’s Month, incredible women working at Clarks reflect on what equity means to them and how it shapes their lives and communities. Uplifting other women, championing change, and increasing awareness: when we come together and ask what each of us can offer, we inspire equity – overcoming challenges and building brighter futures for girls and women.
