Deloitte Barbados commemorated International Women’s Day 2013 by providing tangible support to two local organisations that support the development and growth of women.
The Young Women’s Christian Association (Barbados) received sponsorship support for its upcoming North American and Caribbean Regional Young Women’s Leadership Conference, as scheduled to be held in Barbados from June 20-22, 2013.
The SAVE Foundation, which has received ongoing support from the accounting and business advisory firm, received a donation from Deloitte professionals towards the Foundation’s effort to provide guidance to victims of domestic violence.
The presentations were made by Betty Brathwaite, Deloitte Partner, after professionals participated in a Deloitte organised webcast that focused on “women and leadership” within the Caribbean. The webcast was broadcast within Deloitte’s Caribbean and Bermuda Cluster.
