Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow
International Women’s Day is a global day that celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. Over the years it has focussed on different themes under these issues and this year highlights the importance of “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow.”
Progressive employers understand why gender equality in the workplace is key and in many of today’s economies, women are more educated and employed than ever. In part, we can thank changing social mindsets along with the development of more progressive workplace cultures where a strong focus on diversity and inclusion is evident. Over 87% of companies are highly committed to gender equality – a huge increase from 56% in 2012, this commitment to equality often coming from senior leaders, management and its male employees.
Sonja Wood, Managing Director of Ecosan Services, commented “The staff have worked so hard throughout the pandemic delivering our services, Dan (who is pictured here with Tammy in a suitable Father Christmas outfit) is our newest staff member who was made redundant after 30 years in the same job, and being older it can be hard to get work. But we believe in giving job opportunities to everyone and as you can see, Dan has fitted right in with Ecosan. I want to say a big thank you to our customers who have supported us throughout the year, they provide employment and opportunities for people like Dan!”
In 1977, the United Nations General Assembly invited member states to proclaim March 8 as the UN Day for women’s rights and world peace, and with that at the forefront of many a heart and mind with the crisis taking place in the Ukraine, we are focussing our thoughts on those brave women and their plight and praying for stability in the world once again.
