International Women's Day 2023: #EmbraceEquity
International Women's Day is a global celebration that recognizes the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women around the world. It is also a time to acknowledge the ongoing challenges that women face in the pursuit of gender equity.
This year's theme, "Embrace Equity," highlights the importance of not only advocating for equality but also promoting equity in the workplace.
Equity involves providing equal opportunities and resources to all individuals, irrespective of their gender, race, or ethnicity, in order to ensure fairness and justice. This emphasis on equity recognizes that individuals come from diverse backgrounds and experiences and that true equality can only be achieved when everyone has access to the resources they need to succeed.
At EDF, we recognize our responsibility to embrace equity, and we're excited to share a video we created for International Women's Day to spread this message. We asked employees from across the organization to share their thoughts on what equity means to them in their own words.
We invite you to watch our video and join us in embracing equity. Together, let's work to create a more inclusive and equitable workplace for all.
