In honour of International Women’s Day 2024, Hand Media International is proud to spotlight the significant contributions of our Managing Editor, Rebecca Spayne, who partook in two influential events, underscoring her, and our, commitment to championing women’s empowerment, diversity, and inclusion.

Finding Your Voice: The Journey to Self-Expression and Trusting Your Gut

In honour of International Women’s Day Rebecca was invited to take part in a panel for the “Finding Your Voice: The Journey to Self-Expression and Trusting Your Gut” discussion. This event, essential for women in the supply chain sector and other B2B male-dominated areas, aimed to embolden participants to elevate their careers and become assertive leaders. Rebecca shared the stage with notable figures like Harshida Acharya, Katie Date, Beth Morgan, HG O’Connell, and Kate Magill, providing invaluable insights derived from her extensive experience in media.

Attendees were treated to inspiring success stories, practical advice for overcoming barriers like imposter syndrome, and strategies for thriving in male-dominated environments. The event also facilitated networking, enabling attendees to forge connections with peers and mentors alike.
