This month, in honour of International Women’s Day and it’s theme “choose to challenge”, we are celebrating the ways women use Pinterest to inspire them for their own life challenges both big and small. Women have always come to Pinterest to discover inspiration to create the life they love. Now more than ever, they are in search of ideas for how to reimagine their careers and to navigate through times of change.
A recent study shows 822,500 (ONS, 2021) women currently face unemployment across the UK and while many people’s careers were affected as a result of the pandemic, women were impacted the most, facing challenges such as job loss or juggling multiple responsibilities including childcare, job and home life. On Pinterest, we are seeing women around the world searching for job-related inspiration more than ever — boards created by women for “dream jobs” have increased by 10x¹.
