One of Nordic Intent’s many ideologies is to respect women’s rights and provide them with equal opportunities at the workplace. This is something that is extended to the forty-six women in the company. In fact, the company has a number of women that are a part of the senior management team, doing a fabulous job of taking it to great heights. On that note, the management of Nordic Intent held a small celebration at the office premises to honour all the wonderful women that work at the company.
On the eve of Women’s Day, all the employees were given slips of paper on which they had to write something nice about any one woman from the company that they admired. The idea behind it was to show every woman how much they inspire others with all that they do.
On Friday, the 8th of March, all the women were asked to come dressed in white or shades of purple, which just happened to be the theme colour for this International Women’s Day. In a small and thoughtful gesture, the management presented each of the ladies a sticker with an empowering quote that reminded them of how great they are, along with a delicious cupcake. The handwritten notes made the day for all the women at work because it reminded them of how much they are loved and appreciated while they do their job.
It was a great way to commemorate and thank the women for the different roles they play at the company and remind them that they are a big part of the intricate framework that holds everything together.
We at Nordic Intent truly agree with the theme for 2019 – Women in business think equal, build smart and innovate for a change! We celebrate women every day as we continue on our journey with a belief that empowered women empower the world!
International Women’s Day is celebrated every year on the 8th of March and has been celebrated since the 1900s, coming about from the discrimination doled out to women over the years.
After centuries of protests against gender discrimination and other issues they faced, the United Nations began celebrating it as International Women’s Day in 1975. Finally, in 1995, 189 governments signed a historic document at the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action which envisioned a world where every woman and girl can exercise her choices, such as participating in politics, getting an education, having an income, and living in societies free from violence and discrimination. The day has since earned a special status and is dedicated to honouring women for all they do and all that they have achieved.
