At Audit Express, we are proud to have a team made up by talented and diverse professionals. Today we celebrated International Women’s Day with a morning tea, and asked each of our team members to tell us what today means for them.
I see International Women’s Day as a chance to reflect on the achievements of all women, including women of colour, women with disabilities, trans women, etc. As we celebrate our achievements it is also important to ensure that any push for equality uplifts us all, removing the rights for one group to seemingly protect another hurts all women. The fight for equality must come as a united voice, regardless of race, religion or sexual identity.
International Women’s Day is an opportunity to recognise and celebrate everything that women do and to acknowledge what we have fought for over the years.
I think International Women’s Day celebrates all the achievements that women have done across the globe, giving women the recognition they deserve for all the hard work they have done.
International Women’s Day is a celebration and affirmation that women’s contribution to society is equivalent to any gender.
Recognising women’s achievements today encourages all individuals, groups, and communities to endorse women’s equal standing within our society.
Women at no matter what age they are, are valuable contributors in the workforce.
I am a full time worker.
I am a full time mother.
I am a full time wife.
I am a full time daughter.
Women can do everything!
As a mother of two little girls, International Women’s Day is important to me to teach them to be whoever they want to be; to challenge the status quo; be brave, be courageous, be independent and always be themselves.
International Women’s Day is about creating a world which is free of discrimination and builds a positive environment for women to celebrate equality, inclusivity and diversity.
To me, International Women’s Day is a celebration of everything we are and can do. Strength in unity and striving for quality without leaving anyone behind. There is so much still to do to quash the unconscious bias many women face, but by sticking together, and calling out injustice, there is hope.
To me, International Women’s Day is one of the most important days of the year. This is a day for acknowledging the incredible women in our lives, and to give thanks to our daughters, mothers, cousins, aunts, grandmothers, neighbours and colleagues for being all that they do.
International Women’s Day is a day to celebrate being a woman and acknowledge achievements big and small for every wonderful woman out there.
We hope that you enjoy International Women’s Day today, no matter how you choose to celebrate it!
