Today and every day, we choose to celebrate the women who work alongside us. We acknowledge their past, we respect their present, and we support their future.
Working for a compliance company, we’re well aware of the inequalities women face in the workplace. We hear and read case studies about real women who have faced and overcome adversity in the workplace – and about the women who didn’t.
But every woman in this workplace comes with their own story. We all have an experience where we felt smaller than we really are, where we felt worth less than our true value. And we have all learned from those experiences.
Every woman in this workplace brings innovation, diverse perspectives, and a wealth of talent. We are designers, programmers, lawyers, account managers and financial experts. And we are mothers. We are sisters and daughters. We are friends. We are family.
So, in 2018, as we continue to learn from each other and #pressforprogress, we express our gratitude. We appreciate that we work for an organisation that is fighting to change workplace behaviour for good. That fights for equality. That fights for its people. And we celebrate our involvement in that process.
Women everywhere are strong, together and individually. Women everywhere are driving positive action and change. We will continue to challenge each other, and to support and learn from each other. And we’ll continue celebrating our achievements – big and small.
So today, we thank you, champions of women’s equality across the globe.
