Team Hive is striking the #BalanceForBetter pose in support of International Women’s Day on Friday 8 March 2019.
Because we’re all about celebrating the significant contributions of women in our workplace. In fact, we believe a diverse workforce is the key to innovation and better business success!
“Gender equality at work is absolutely essential to creativity and innovation. Research only continues to grow on the ways that diversity impacts wider business success, but it’s critical that initiatives around gender equality and diversity do not become a mere box-ticking exercise – they should be a part of every business strategy.”
Jen Southern, Hive People Scientist
How to support International Women’s Day 2019
Here at Hive’s Newcastle HQ, we’re kicking off our International Women’s Day 2019 support with a company-wide education in combatting gender bias in the workplace. During our dedicated ‘Lunch & Learn’ session, we’ll be looking to the wealth of free resources provided by International Women’s Day Campaign partners such as Lean In, who have created an awesome workplace activity called 50 Ways to Fight Bias.
And to help drive awareness internally and externally, we’ll all be striking the #BalanceForBetter pose on social media. We’re hosting an internal photo competition; inviting Hive team members to tag their own Balance for Better photos with: #HiveCares— capturing our enthusiasm and commitment to gender equality at work.
We’ll be updating this space with our favourite pictures, plus key insights from our Lunch & Learn session, so stay tuned!
