A number of activities were planned to highlight what women have achieved and
the challenges that many women still face.

Group CEO Paul Hermelin and Global Outsourcing Leader Paul Spence held conference
calls with up to 300 of our women executives and diversity champions. These calls were
an opportunity to examine how we can further improve diversity across the Group.

We also explored current best practices to help under-privileged women in local
communities, as well as promoting initiatives to support women in difficult situations across
the world.
