To celebrate International Women’s Day 2019, the media and creative studio, Packed.House, invited staff to express their gratitude to their female colleagues in an emotive video piece.

For 2019, the team have pledged to:

  • Help women and girls in their community to achieve their ambitions.
  • End mental health stigma in the workplace and in their community.
  • Always strive towards creating a more diverse and inclusive workplace.


During the week, Packed.House also produced a very special ‘Women in Media’ podcast to discuss the campaign theme for International Women’s Day 2019, #BalanceforBetter. The podcast was hosted by Ruth Scott, radio presenter on Radio Nova, journalist and TV presenter and featured, Sarah Taylor, Digital Out of Home Director at Wide Eye Outdoor, Mairead Cahalan, Head of Content Development at Packed.House and Cara Doyle, Head of Content Partnerships at Packed.House.

Speaking about the #BalanceforBetter commitment, Richie Kelly, CEO of Packed.House said, “The future of Packed.House is very exciting, every day I am inspired by our talented workforce. There is a lot to be done in the media industry to ensure we have a more balanced industry but at Packed.House I pledge we will always strive towards creating a more diverse and inclusive workforce. In 2019 we also want to reach out to our community and help educate women and girls but also work with our community in helping to end mental health stigma for everyone.”
