Happy International Women’s Day - today we celebrate women everywhere!
“On International Women's Day, let's remember that when we support and provide opportunities for women and girls to be equal, everyone is greater for it,” said Joana McKenna, President of Walker Edison.
Walker Edison has signed the ElevateHER™ pledge through the Women’s Leadership Institute and is committed to increasing the percentage of women in leadership, increasing the retention rate of women at all levels, monitoring pay and closing any identified gaps, as well as establishing leadership development and mentoring programs for women.
Our ERG, the Women of Walker Edison, is committed to encouraging and elevating women through an environment of learning and allyship. This group spearheads programing designed to foster diversity and inclusion for the employees of Walker Edison while giving women a forum to find their voice and be heard. WOWE promotes the presence of female managers and executives by encouraging and elevating women while celebrating their own successes.
There are so many ways you can celebrate women today and every day. Celebrate women’s achievements, raise awareness to bias and inequality, seek out educational opportunities, and elevate those around you.
