International Women's Day
International Women’s Day (8th March) is celebrated to acknowledge the contribution that women make to our society, their achievements and the steps still to take in the journey towards having a world that is fair and inclusive for all individuals.
At ACU, women are represented at all levels and in all work areas. We are proud of our achievements in supporting women and providing a safe, fair and equitable workplace for all.
