International Women’s Day

Imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. A world that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women’s equality. Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias 

When women enjoy their work, it is often because they feel valued and supported. Additionally, the work is rewarding and meaningful, the environment is dynamic and inclusive, and the pay and benefits are highly competitive. When women feel part of a higher mission, are supported to achieve, and their values are aligned with their employer’s – it is more likely their careers will thrive. It is International Women’s Day, and we are celebrating the women in our team.

Join in the conversation and let us know what being a woman means to you!

What does being a woman mean to you?

I can help continue the fight for a diverse, equitable and inclusive world and continue to teach the younger generation to not make the same mistakes made in our history when it comes to bias, stereotypes and discrimination

Every day I teach my children the importance of being a woman, the history behind the struggles we have overcome and the brave powerful women who stood up for the equal rights of our gender in history. I teach them to be open minded, to make their own decisions as to who they want to be/ to do and to be celebrated for what they achieve no matter big or small. We all have a voice we should be able to use it. When we had an election, we discussed the importance of having a voice and having a vote given that the woman’s suffrage fought for our rights across the world in the 19th century.

 

Moving into the future whilst we still struggle with equal rights, gender bias and inclusivity, I believe we have paved the way from history for a more accepted society irrelevant of your gender and the important message that every human should be treated equally no matter your gender, faith or race. We should be celebrated for our achievements and rewarded as such in line with every other person, irrelevant of who you are.

What does being a woman mean to you?

I love being a woman.  I have been lucky enough to be a mother and that is the most important thing being a woman means to me.  Whilst we may moan that men have it easy, I feel lucky to have carried my child and gone through the pain of childbirth as I feel that forged a bond so strong it overtakes any other relationship I have in my life. I am also very privileged to be part of a workforce strongly dominated by fantastic women from all ages and backgrounds.  Together we form a very productive, fair and strong team, always striving to do our best.  I am also very lucky as a woman to have a brilliant circle of very close friends away from work, which we have had since childhood.  The support over the years that we have given to each other is priceless, helping each other through the highest and lowest points in life.  The friendships are never ending and, in some ways, replaces the need for an EAP as we are each other’s rocks when needed.

What does being a woman mean to you? Being a woman to me is belonging to a group of individuals within society that like myself, our lives have been mapped out as living in a world that was not designed for us. Being a woman is being proud of how we have broken down so many barriers over the years to create a world where we fit in and can make a difference. Unfortunately, we still live in a world where women are treated unfairly just because of their sex. Being a woman for me is amazing, it’s what I identify as a person and I couldn’t be prouder of who I am and all the people who I surround myself with, we are all equal, together. Nothing is stronger than a happy woman, we can achieve a lot.

What does being a woman mean to you? Being a woman, to me, means being whoever I want to be without my intensions or dedication being questioned – especially within a patriarchal society. Being a woman surpasses biology, it’s about being strong, brave, selfless, kind, empathic and a loving human being, and most importantly, setting an example for all the young girls in my family and setting them up to beat the challenges they will face by just being a woman.
