Recognizing Women's Achievements at Kara5
As part of the #IWD2023 celebration, five inspiring women from Kara5's team reflect on their experiences and give advice.
International Women's Day is an opportunity for people around the world to reflect on the progress women have made in terms of social, political, cultural and economic achievements.
This year's theme is #EmbraceEquity, which celebrates the belief that all of us play a part in creating a gender-equal world.

They reflected on their experience in their roles and shared advice for women interested in entering the digital and creative industry.
