Island Villas celebrates International Women’s Day 2017

Island Villas Ltd is proud to support International Women’s Day 2017 and pledge our commitment to forging a more gender inclusive world. The World Economic Forum predicts the gender gap won’t close entirely until 2186. Our team is ready to #BeBoldForChange and play our part in promoting gender parity.

As part of our IWD2017 celebrations we are highlighting some of the amazing women that make up the Island Villas team. Over the years we have established a diverse, talented and exceptional workforce and women continue to make invaluable contributions at every level of the organization, including top management.
