The Independent even has a webpage capturing news and conversations about all angles of gender diversity.

Our panel could have jumped on this bandwagon and shared metrics about this issue, but we didn’t. We chose a different route. We decided to #womanup and #RiseAboveTheNoise ourselves to address some key areas that don’t often get discussed.
