AN AUTHENTIC THANK YOU
Herstory is inviting companies worldwide to embrace and support this authentic opportunity to celebrate women and say thank you by commissioning a light installation.
"Irish women make 85% of purchasing decisions in this country. The health of the national economy and the success of businesses lie in the hands of women,"
- Melanie Lynch, Herstory Founder
Dublin-based advertising agency Ogilvy is the first company to get on board, championing the Illuminate Herstory Light Festival across their global network of 450 offices in 173 cities around the world.
"Ogilvy are delighted to recognise the incredible women who have made their mark on our history in Ireland. As part of our Project Eve initiative with our sister company Kanter Millward Brown, Ogilvy & Mather in Dublin intend to illuminate our own historic building and call on our sister companies throughout the world to do the same that week."
- JP Donnelly, Ogilvy’s CEO.
Businesses can support local Illuminate Herstory initiatives by partnering with county councils, arts centres, schools and local women's organisations to sponsor light installations and storytelling events. If your company or organisation has an international network please extend the invitation to offices abroad.
To commission a landmark light installation in Ireland we recommend our event company partner's Eventco Ireland - click for their portfolio.
N.B. Please credit sponsors in supporting media (online, press etc) - no logos / commercial material are permitted on the light installations. This is in respect for the women you are celebrating! Click here to submit your event to the official Illuminate Herstory Festival programme.
