Celebrate International Women’s Day 2017 #BeBoldForChange

March 8th, 2017

Today, March 8th 2017, is International Women’s Day, celebrating the economic, cultural, social and political achievements of women. This year’s theme is #BeBoldForChange, calling upon organisations and individuals around the world to ‘help forge a better working world – a more gender inclusive world’.

Last year, the campaign theme #PledgeForParity was committed to helping women and girls achieve their ambitions, as well as calling for gender-balanced leadership, challenging bias and valuing women and men’s contributions equally to create inclusive flexible cultures. The eg ladies held an event to discuss these issues and whether there were any areas for improvement within the company.

This created a great deal of interest from the eg gentlemen; some wondered what we were discussing and why we needed to have a meeting to discuss gender issues at all, others wanted to be invited to participate.

They need not have worried. The ladies concluded that are no gender issues at eg and we are all treated very well by our gentlemen colleagues. They got a huge thank you from the ladies!

Elizabeth said;

“We are delighted to be celebrating International Women’s Day this year.

“I do think we should celebrate the struggles that other women have made throughout our history to secure us our right to vote and to equal pay. We all benefit from those achievements.

“I am also delighted that our team are happy and cohesive; which has been reflected by our Best Companies two-star rating that we have been awarded for the second year in a row.”
