To mark International Women’s Day 2023, we’ve asked some of our colleagues and leaders in STEM to step out and talk about their inspiration and career highlights to date. As we know there are many more to come!

At Tirlán, we’re marking International Women’s Day 2023 #EmbraceEquity with a series of events designed to spark debate, raise awareness continue to develop an inclusive culture.

One of our core values is Celebrating Individuality. We believe when people bring their authentic selves to work they feel a greater sense of belonging leading to greater innovation, better decision making and more engaged employees.
