Happy International Women’s Day!
Today, we celebrate the achievements of women around the globe and acknowledge the push for gender parity, pay equality, and inclusion. This year, the theme is #BalanceForBetter, which focuses on the efforts put forth to achieve gender equality in the workplace. As an organization, Protiviti places emphasis on the value of inclusion. In fact, it’s one of our core values! While we celebrate this year-round, today is a special day to honor all of our employees who help to build an inclusive company culture, and furthermore, to celebrate the women in our organization who make Protiviti a great place to work for all. A gender-balanced workplace provides an opportunity for everyone to bring their unique skills and help create an environment where everyone can be happy and successful.
“We all have a part to play in creating a more balanced and diverse workplace where everyone thrives. As we celebrate International Women’s Day, I encourage everyone to think and act on ways to be more gender inclusive,” says Executive Vice President of Diversity & Inclusion, Susan Haseley. “At Protiviti, we strive to do our part every day, and we have made great progress in these areas, as evidenced by some of the recent diversity and inclusion accolades we’ve received. We look forward to strengthening our efforts to support our employees and bringing more awareness to the importance of inclusion.”
Protiviti’s internal women’s network, iGROWW, which stands for the Growth and Retention of Women in the Workplace, is helping to lead events today to discuss the theme and provide networking opportunities across our offices. iGROWW was created to aid in the promotion of education and advancement of women at Protiviti. It provides tools and resources to empower our people to be top leaders in our organization.
Inclusion helps to move us forward together. So, how can you #BalanceForBetter?
- Promote awareness. Help to bring awareness by striking the “hands out” pose, taking a photo, and posting the photo to your social platforms with the hashtag #BalanceForBetter.
- Get involved. Join a network that helps to support women. This can be at work or in your community! Help to support and mentor women and young girls to grow into the best version themselves and provide them with the tools they need to be successful.
- Be vocal. Challenge stereotypes and gender bias that you experience or witness. Mentor someone. Nominate and recognize.
We look forward to continuing to build an organization built on the fundamental value of inclusion with our amazing team. Today, we bring awareness to the issues of imbalance that currently affect our world today. At Protiviti, we know that together we are better. Happy International Women’s Day to all!
