Celebrating International Women’s Day 2021
“Women belong in all places where decisions are being made. It shouldn’t be that women are the exception.”Ruth Bader Ginsburg
In 2020, women lost a fierce and passionate advocate: Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the 2nd woman in history to serve on the Supreme Court. Her passing had a tremendous impact on women across the world due to her unequivocal fight for equality and justice for all. Her legacy will not be forgotten and her refusal to be silenced will live on, especially because the struggle against inequality and injustice is unfortunately far from behind us and continues today.
March 8th is International Women’s Day and every year there is a theme with 2021 being #ChooseToChallenge to bring hope and attention to the importance of challenging intolerance and biased assumptions in the interest of creating a more inclusive and gender-equal world. At SDHRC, we support the growth and empowerment of women every day believing recognition and opportunities for all women of all walks of life should be celebrated! We strongly believe giving women a voice and allowing them to thrive is imperative as we proudly provide a flexible work-life balance where their talents and passions can shine. Our expert team of Recruiters and Consultants understand the importance of family and work-life balance and every single one of them bring a unique passion and perspective to their role here at SDHRC.
It is our mission to provide a workplace where our employees feel confident and comfortable contributing their ideas with the confidence they will be heard. We realize it is the talent and motivation of our team of women that allows for SDHRC’s continued success and growth.
A Washington Post reported in July that the “coronavirus child-care crisis will set women back a generation and roughly half of all essential workers (about 27 million) are women.” It is imperative now, more than ever that employers consider making a conscious effort to invest in providing a more flexible and supportive workplace as the need has grown significantly due to COVID -19. The challenges and mounting pressure upon businesses to stay afloat and the hurdles families are having to face may at times seem insurmountable, but we can work together to find solutions.
We appreciate and acknowledge the world we live in still has a long road ahead to reach equality and justice for all and we will continue to support and encourage all efforts in making this dream a reality.
How SDHRC Can Help
At SDHRC, we support women not just today on International Women’s Day, but every day. By supporting local nonprofits, like Casa de Amparo, we support women not only in our community but in our workplace as well which circles back to our 3 C’s: Clients, Colleagues and Community.
When it comes to your business, we are here to assist you. We are committed to providing you with our support, interpretation, and clarification of the COVID-19 impact on your organization and the new wave of normal as it relates to remote working.
