International Women’s Day is a day dedicated to celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. Every year, March 8th is dedicated to both the celebration of the advancements women have made and as a call to action for accelerating gender parity. For well over a century, like-minded individuals have gathered to support women’s equality and today groups worldwide rally behind International Women’s Day, making the day their own.
Every year a theme is established that groups and businesses rally behind online. This year’s theme is Balance for Better. The theme supports the idea that balance is not a women’s issue, it’s a business issue. Gender-balance is something that we must all work to achieve in government, media coverage, life sciences, the boardroom, and all aspects of business.
At PharmaLogics we have achieved gender-balance in our leadership, pay, and staff and hope to work with other businesses to make gender balance the norm.
This year we made a video dedicated to the theme #BalanceforBetter, showcasing the support our company and coworkers provide for forging a more gender-balanced world.
