Happy International Women’s Day!
This International Women’s Day at Cordant People we believe a balanced world is a better world.
That’s why today we’re showing our support for a more gender-balanced world by celebrating women’s achievement, raising awareness against bias and taking action for equality.
Let’s build a gender-balanced world.
“As the mother of two young daughters and the leader of a business where equality is of the utmost importance, IWD and the #balanceforbetter campaign is a great opportunity to continue to push for change to forge a more gender-balanced world for all our young women and men” – Kelly Kendall, Managing Director
“Gender balance means something different to everyone. Equality is one of the most pressing matters of the modern age. We all have a responsibility to ensure our children grow and flourish in a world of equality and opportunity. In an increasingly competitive world, there are actions we can all take to advance equality, it’s not simply a woman’s issue, equality is beneficial to everyone!” – Ria McAdam-Lawlor, Divisional Director
“When society starts to focus on empowering young women to recognise they have no limitations we will see some progress in regard to gender balance” – Natasha Douglas, Senior HR Business Partner
“To me, IWD is about equality for all. We need to encourage our young women AND men to pursue their goals and dreams no matter their gender. Societal roles are becoming increasingly gender fluid and women’s equality in the workplace should be at the forefront of discussion within UK businesses” – Dana Cripps, Brand Manager
“Everyone has a part to play – all the time, everywhere. From grassroots activism to worldwide action, we are entering an exciting period of history where the world expects balance. We notice its absence and celebrate its presence. Balance drives a better working world. Let’s all help to create a #BalanceforBetter” – IWD
