Entigrity Ladies Day Out On International Women's Day
International women's day is a celebration of all the societal, literary and political achievements by women worldwide. It was first observed on Feb 28th in 1909, but the date March 8th was formally declared to be the day in 1910. Today it's not country, group or organization it’s about women collectively everywhere.
From grassroots activism to worldwide action, we are entering an exciting period of history where the world expects balance. The theme for this year's women's day is #BalanceForBetter, with regards to the greater global push for professional and social equality. Its objective is to achieve a sense of balance in companies and elsewhere, right from the grassroots level to the boardrooms.
Although a huge gender divide still exists where women are under-represented in the field of science, technology, engineering, politics, business, etc but we actually need their ideas, insights and experiences to meet world's needs and truly leave no one behind. A good sign is that there is great involvement of women in healthcare, education and very importantly accounting.
Speaking of accounting, in 1977 28% of women graduated with an accounting degree, while in 2011, that number raised up to 53% of graduating accountants being female and is expecting a 13 percent increase by 2022, providing an additional 166,700 job opportunities for certified public accountants.
As a policy Entigrity Remote Staffing practices and enforces complete gender equality & parity and absolutely no tolerance for discrimination or biases. We really appreciate the talent, skills and experience our women bring and also the dedication and responsibility they exhibit when it comes to delivering great quality work.
As the day belongs to women, it certainly calls for celebration, ladies from Entigrity had an all girls’ day out where they gathered for a theme (and team) lunch amidst talks and frolic. Coming to work was however absolutely not optional due to the ongoing tax season, which must be a very respectable mention here as no lady called it a day off. We highly honor your willingness to finish the work at hand before trying any other thing.
In a call to balance the world better in terms of gender, we must understand that gender balance is not a women's issue, it's a business issue; it is essential for economies and communities to thrive.
With that note, we just hope that more and more women trust Entigrity as a preferred organization to pursue their careers. Also we equally applaud our women clients & we are proud of their work ethics & achievements. Thanks for your trust & support.
It’s rightly said though,“Think equal, build smart, innovate for change”.
