Happy International Women’s Day!

Today is International Women’s Day! On this day, we celebrate the achievements of the women around us and raise awareness about the continued struggles for equality and gender parity.

This year’s global theme is “inspiring inclusion.” Inspiring inclusion encourages everyone to recognize the unique perspectives and contributions of women worldwide by challenging stereotypes, breaking down barriers, and creating an environment where all women are respected.

Here are some ways we can inspire inclusion in our workplace: 

  • Be an Ally: Support and uplift your female colleagues and help champion their voices. Listen to their experiences and validate their perspectives.
  • Celebrate Women’s Achievements: One of our values is Do Great Work Together. When one of us succeeds, we all succeed. Recognizing each other’s achievements promotes camaraderie and boosts morale.
  • Seek Women’s Input: Involve women coworkers in the decision-making processes. Their perspectives are valuable and contribute to well-rounded decisions.
  • Support Groups at L&P that Champion Women: The Women’s ERG’s mission is to raise the visibility of women, celebrate their unique contributions and perspectives, foster personal and professional development, broaden their support network, build allyship, and influence positive change.
