In the world of Human Resources, International Women’s Day gives us the time to reflect on how far we have come and what we have achieved with gender equality and also as we look to the future to where we can continue to develop.
With a theme “More Powerful Together” we see the importance of the role women play. When we all work collaboratively across what divides us we are able to break down the barriers of gender roles and create opportunities for all us in gender equality, through a celebration of economic, political and social achievements for women.
With hashtags like businesschicks and Instagram businesschicks there is an enormous social media presence working with this today highlighting the celebration and achievements of women and the direction business needs to focus on in the future.
As employers we need to look at our strategic planning for our business and ask what are we doing to enhance this in the future. How are we going to positively lead our business with gender equality and showcase the advantages to our industry.
