    Orla Joyce, Legal Director Heineken in Cork showed how it makes business sense to have more diversity in an organisation like Heineken and how policy has to support everyone at all points of their careers. She also spoke about the value of mentoring and sponsorship for both men and women in organisations.

    Tom O'Halloran Diversity and Inclusion at LAYA Healthcare was passionate about recognising the contribution of women colleagues and says he sees the benfits of a having a diverse workforce like they have in Laya especially when it comes to understanding the women's health journey. Their own workforce is often its best source for testing new offerings and policies he said and he advocated the necessity of ensuring bias free recruitment, onboarding, promoting and developing of staff throughout the careers of employees.



    Ali O'Mahony Education Officer with the Students Union spoke about the challenge she faces as a young woman often walking into a room of men in suits but talked of how she has learned from this experience.

    College President John O'Halloran, a strong supporter of MnàUCC, celebrated the contributions of female staff but agreed there is a long road ahead to bring more balance for women in leading roles in the college.



    The event was the brainchild of DIBA the Dutch Irish Business Association led by Marc Berghouwer President and Linda Nugent of DIBA.  Her Exellency Maaike van Koldam, Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands opened the event and said for her “it remains important to highlight the achievements and

    capabilities of women each year until we reach a truly equal society."
