Earlier this year, RTÉ's Taragh Loughrey Grant hosted a special live podcast event to mark International Women's Day. Today, that same discussion will be aired at 2pm on RTÉ Radio 1. 

Under the theme of 'Balance for Better', Taragh spoke with RTÉ Director-General Dee Forbes, PWC accountant Deborah Somorin who overcame homelessness at 14, and presenter and fashion designer Brendan Courtney about gender equality, diversity, and much more.

It was an incredible night filled with music from Sorcha Richardson, a selfie station where guests could strike their best 'IWD pose', wine from Tesco Finest and goody bags filled with treats from the RTÉ Guide, Just Eat, Spotlight, Flahavans, Keoghs, and LaRoche Posay. Plus, each of our panelists received a beautiful bouquet from Flowers Made Easy.
