Happy International Women’s Day!

ITSM Zone is an organisation firmly within the IT sector and we are lucky to buck the industry trend on women, with 60% of the company shareholders being female. As an educator we believe in the power of knowledge, but this alone won’t take you to the places you want to be.

It’s International Women’s Day, a day to honor and celebrate the cultural, social, economic and political achievements of women. It’s a day to remind ourselves why women are so amazing, but as well it is time to celebrate the strong women who surround us in our everyday lives.

This year’s International Women’s Day theme is #EachforEqual.

An equal world is an enabled world. Collectively, each one of us can help create a gender equal world.

Let’s all be #EachforEqual.

Claire Agutter – Director/Lead Tutor

I’ve been fortunate in my career to learn from and be mentored by some amazing women.

It’s wonderful to see the next generation coming through into IT roles and how they all support each other.

Let’s all be #EachforEqual

 

So much has been achieved, but without question, there is still a long way to go. I hope for future generations that the discussion around equality is no longer needed, that equality is just given and accepted by all.

“Feminist: a person who believes in the social, political and economic equality of the sexes” Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

I am very fortunate that I am employed by an organization where everyone is valued equally…but in this current time, where worldwide there is still great disparity between the sexes, it is important not to be complacent and stand up for equality, especially where hard won rights are threatened.

Let’s all be #EachforEqual

 

We would like to to think that we live in a modern world, but gender equality is something that is still being discussed and questioned.

I can give my team as an example where everyone is treated the same, with same respect, same understanding and support, where everyone has same rights. That is how we should feel not only at work but everywhere else.

No one is equal until all of us are equal. We don’t need magic to transform our world.  Every one of us can do our bit to bring about gender equality. During my professional career I am thankful to all my colleagues, male and female whom I come across for being supportive and courteous. From today’s perspective I must admit that it is a blast to be surrounded with majority female team that believe that education is the right way to encourage the young female generation.

Our individual actions and mindsets can have an impact on our larger society.

Let’s all be #EachforEqual
