International Women’s day is a day to celebrate the achievements of women from different walks of life. It’s a day to recognize the extraordinary role that women play at different levels like leading a country, working in an organization, being an entrepreneur, doing social work or just putting together a family.
Though a lot is being said and done on but as per the Global Gender Gap Report 2020 by the World Economic Forum, none of us will see gender parity in our lifetimes. The report states that gender parity will not be achieved for 99.5 years. Hence we can conclude that there is still a lot that needs to be done from all of us.
At Excelgens we are committed to gender diversity. To start with we are a woman owned business and hence involving women in every aspect of our work is at the core of our organization. We ensure that our workforce strategies are built so that women get an equal chance at taking up challenging work or improving skills or getting involved in decision making aspects of the business.
We celebrated International Women’s day by organizing a small party in our office. Delicious snacks and sweets were ordered and we gave out shopping vouchers to our team of women employees as a token of our appreciation for them.
