    in Business

    Co-host: Mari Riddle


    Make It Happen is the 2015 theme for our internationalwomensday.com global hub, encouraging effective action for advancing and recognising women.


    Each year International Women's Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8. The first International Women's Day was held in 1911. Thousands of events occur to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women. Organisations, governments, charities, educational institutions, women's groups, corporations and the media celebrate the day.


    Various organisations identify their own International Women's Day theme, specific to their local context and interests. Many charities, NGOs and Governments also adopt a relevant theme or campaign to mark the day. For example, organisations like the UN, Oxfam, Women for Women, Care International, Plan, World Association of Girl Guides & Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) and more - run exciting and powerful campaigns that raise awareness and encourage donations for good causes. The UN has been declaring an annual equality theme for many years.

    ACT FAST with Oxfam

    in Culture

    I wonder how many of us get excited when seeing new photo updates from our friends, colleagues, peers, family and really just amazing people going to exciting destinations doing exciting things? I would imagine most of us. Photo updates have a unique way of really drawing us into the realism of what that other person is experiencing and invites us to experience this emotion with them. Oxfam’s new campaign is brilliant in this sense. Their new campaign titled, Ending Hunger Starts with Women, provides leverage to a plethora of incredible individuals and organizations utilizing the power of photo images to tell their stories of determined women globally eager to ending hunger. We have all heard of the astronomical stats of the millions of women around the world working tirelessly irrigating fields, carrying buckets of water for long stretches, dreaming of how their daughters will not have to suffer the same fate of this harsh life and now we get to see of these images up close.

    You too can show your support and with today being the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day around the world, tell us your story too. Take a look at my show with Sarah Kalloch, Advisor for Campaign Alliances at Oxfam and see how.

    Show #85: From Cascade to Conversation, How You Communicate With Your Employees

    in Business

    Special Guest: Katie Macaulay, managing director of AB, Author of 'From Cascade to Conversation'


    A new book is set to challenge employers to rethink how they communicate internally. From Cascade to Conversation says organisations have lost control of the message – if they ever had it.


    From Cascade to Conversation includes case studies and informed input from UK household names such as BT, Sainsbury’s, Oxfam, B&Q, Post Office, HSBC, Waitrose and Coca-Cola Enterprises.


    The premise of From Cascade to Conversation maintains that broadcasting to employees is dangerously archaic in today’s digital age. People everywhere have found their voice. We no longer passively receive the message: we share and shape it together.


    Organisations that broadcast to their people are the antithesis of how we, as individuals, choose to communicate. Continuing with the corporate monologue will increasingly fail to meet employees’ expectations.


    “For years, organisations have been broadcasting messages to employees. It’s time to end the corporate monologue and engage in meaningful conversations,” says author Katie Macaulay.


    Join us as we explore this challenge.
