March 8 is International Women’s Day and this year the theme is #BalanceforBetter, focusing on the importance of gender equality.
Today women make up 47 per cent of the Constabulary with many holding senior positions. But there is always more we can do and we’ll continue to work towards closing the gender gap in every part of our organisation.
To mark the day we are celebrating the talents and achievement of women from across the Force and the contribution they make to the organisation, and their communities. You can watch our International Women’s Day film here, and find out what Balance for Better means to us.
We’ll also be sharing more stories throughout the day on Instagram – follow us on @aspolice
