Today is the day we celebrate the grandmothers, mothers, sisters, aunt’s, best friends and influential women in our lives. It’s a day when we say thank you to the women that have helped us along the way, loved us, taught us and cheered us on. We recognize the struggles of women across the globe. We support the growth and push for total gender equality.
We stand with the International Women’s Parity campaign “to take concrete action as we all work together to build a better gender-balanced world.” According to the official website, “Studies show that gender-balanced organizations and teams deliver stronger results, and that inclusive societies are more progressive, but ingrained bias slows the progress of equality. Organizations must build cultures where all people feel valued and included and can contribute fully according to their capabilities.” We couldn’t agree more. We have been blessed with an open-minded and capable staff and for that we are grateful.
We are a team made up of women and men who love women. It is our promise to continue to challenge conscious and unconscious gender bias both in our office and in our personal lives.
If you want to join the movement you can do so here. Today we #PledgeForParity.
