Women’s equality has made positive gains but the world is still unequal. International Women’s Day celebrates the social, political and economic achievements of women while focusing global attention on areas requiring further action.
Each year International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8, with the first ever celebration being held in 1911. Thousands of events occur to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women. Organisations, governments, charities, educational institutions, women’s groups, corporations and the media celebrate the day.
Here at Life & Pension Systems we use the opportunity to celebrate all our female team members! We have some amazing, talented, driven and inspirational women at the company and we are grateful for each and everyone of them
We still have a way to go when closing the gender gap in tech, with women making up just 25% of technology workers, and the quit rate for women in high tech jobs is 41%, more than twice that of men. Women in tech, are often offered 2.5 percent less salary than their male counterparts.. so there is still some global work to be done....
However, we are proud to say that our team is 50% female and gender has no influence on what we pay our staff!
Thank you ladies for being such a great asset to the company, we wouldn't be where we are without you!
Happy International Womens Day 2022
