Procorre to feature as part of the official History of Parliament Vote 100 commemorative celebrations
Procorre is proud to announce its inclusion in a major publication to celebrate the centenary of women gaining the right to vote in the UK.
This year marks 100 years since Parliament passed the Representation of the People Act 1918 which was a package of electoral reforms that extended the vote to women for the first time. As part of these celebrations, publisher St James’s House has partnered with the History of Parliament Trust to produce their official commemorative album for the Vote100 anniversary.
Launching in June 2018, this book tells the story of the 84-year struggle for women to get the vote, how the vote was won and what that has meant for women since.
In addition to discussing key historical events, this fully illustrated coffee-table book will showcase a selection of organisations drawn from educational, cultural, social, technological and business spheres with relevant stories to tell.
As a leading Professional Consultancy, Procorre has joined the celebrations as an editorial partner and sponsor for the official History of Parliament Trust Vote100 commemorative album.
Procorre are heavily involved with helping our female contractors thrive within the consulting industry. We promote gender equality across all sectors, whilst striving to help our female employees to advance their careers.
Anne O’Donnell, Group Sales and Marketing Director at Procorre, states: “While it’s great to see almost a million women bringing their skills and expertise for a wide range of clients on a consultancy basis, they are significantly in the minority compared to men.
On paper, consultancy should be an attractive career choice for more women, given that it offers greater scope for flexibility, potentially a better work-life balance, as well as often comparatively better pay and therefore a way to break the ‘Glass Ceiling’ barrier, which can be associated with many full time position.
Going self-employed is a big step, which is why we offer comprehensive advice to help people get their consultancy careers off the ground and provide on-going support to ensure they get the most out of this rewarding career choice on an on-going basis."
Procorre actively encourages the retention and promotion of female talent, with both consultants and internal staff. By offering dedicated support, generous financial benefits and global project opportunities, we provide more flexibility for our consultants to strike the right work-life balance.
St James’s House Founder and CEO, Richard Freed, said, “Equality is one of the most important values underpinning our society, and we are extremely excited to be producing this official commemorative album for the Trust. We are also very pleased to be working with Procorre as one of our profiled organisations.”
The publication will be distributed on a controlled-circulation basis to key figures and organisations around the world including Members of the House of Lords and House of Commons, and will be made available to the general public through leading book retailers including Amazon.
