New Signature is an advocate to create equality across genders in our organization, and International Women’s Day is a perfect time to celebrate the women and gender minorities in our offices. Empowering women and celebrating their achievements falls directly in line with our core values:
- Human – We choose to see our coworkers as people first and rather than ignoring their value and the obstacles they face due to gender, we recognize it and work to correct it.
- Innovative – We know that our New Signature women are paramount in our daily efforts to innovate for our clients.
- Generous – We want to show our women that gender equality is a top-down responsibility and that we appreciate our employees of all genders.
- Authentic – Our efforts to support and appreciate all genders is not a trend for us. We are committed to empower our women and all gender minorities today and moving toward the future.
To that end, we developed lunch and learn experiences in all our global offices for our employees to come together, celebrate their female coworkers and learn about the experiences.
Our team in the London office enjoyed lunch together before hearing from Vicki Pent, Director of Project Management, learning and discussing diversity and challenges in the modern workplace.
Our office in Washington, D.C. had lunch and held a female-led panel discussion around gender equality topics.
Our team in the Alpharetta, Georgia, office also had a celebration and some discussions both on-site and with some remote employees, collaborating on new ideas for how New Signature can support everyone across the gender spectrum.
We can’t wait to witness and support all the amazing things our women and gender minorities will accomplish this next year. Our mission as an organization is to support the necessary efforts to equalize and empower everyone. Happy International Women’s Day!
