As women make up 68% of the GatenbySanderson workforce, 71% of our senior leadership and 51% of client appointees, International Women’s Day is business as usual for GatenbySanderson.  

We do think it’s a great opportunity though, to pause and recognise some of the great pioneering work being undertaken across public services. Here are just some of the many women, over the last 12 months, we are privileged to have played a part in appointing, who, every day, help shape a better society.
