Celebrating International Women’s Day

From the boardroom to the shop floor, women are key to the Dune London success story.

...

At Dune London, women are critical to our global business success.

We champion women from day one, giving them the tools, support and opportunities to help them thrive and reach their potential, whatever area of the business they choose to work in. From the shop floor to the boardroom, women are key drivers in making our business an inspiring place to work, helping lay the foundations for the next generation of trail blazers.

To celebrate International Women's Day 2020, we asked six of our staff to dispense their top career tips and to reveal what it's like to work at Dune London. We're taking notes...
