In honor of International Women’s Day (IWD) on March 8, 2024, Naviga is thrilled to spotlight the stories of extraordinary women leading the charge in the Media and Publishing sectors. These are the visionary partners we’re privileged to collaborate with, each trailblazing paths toward innovation and success. 

IWD, a tradition rooted in the early 20th century, has blossomed into a worldwide celebration that: 

  • Applauds the remarkable achievements of women
  • Spreads knowledge and fosters awareness about the quest for gender equality 
  • Advocates for impactful changes that promote women’s advancement
  • Pushes for the acceleration of gender parity
  • Supports fundraising efforts for charities dedicated to women’s causes

 For a deeper dive into the history and global activities commemorating this day, we encourage a visit to the official IWD website.
