Once a year, there is a day set aside to focus on issues affecting women and women's rights worldwide. International Women's Day (IWD) is a time for people to come together in solidarity to promote a better working environment, with the foremost goal of forging a world that celebrates gender parity.
The theme of this year's campaign is #BeBoldForChange. It aims to challenge each member of society, whether man, woman, or non-binary, to become a leader and an agent of change within our own social spheres.
In support of this theme, Lizzy James seeks to confront gender inequality head-on by focusing on some of the key tenets of IWD that we implement every day in our offices. The push for gender equality is extremely important to us, and we go out of our way to support women in the workplace.
99% of the staff that Lizzy James employs are women, and the diversity within our office is key to our mission as a whole. We are a woman-owned company, and our founder is devoted to fostering growth within the company. We always try to promote from within, and we encourage employee longevity.
We hope that you'll stand with us this IWD in helping to promote gender equality worldwide. For more information on International Women's Day, please visit their website here.
