Today, let’s join together to celebrate International Women's Day and recognize the achievements of women around the world. International Women’s Day is a call to action for accelerating women's equality. This year’s global campaign theme is “Choose to Challenge”. The campaign encourages us to call out gender bias and inequality and reminds us all of the need to increase our awareness of the barriers and biases that women face.
At Associated, we recognize the need for equity, diversity and inclusion. That is why we established the WISER (Women in Science and Engineering Retention) Committee and the Diversity and Inclusion Committee to help us better understand the issues facing women and minorities, eliminate unconscious biases, and increase their retention and advancement. By fostering a culture where everyone can reach their potential, we will create a more inclusive environment and shape a better world for all of us.
