This event was first observed to draw attention to women’s equality and workplace issues at the beginning of the 20th Century. In the new millennium, the day more actively promotes women’s rights and celebrates the economic, political and social achievements of women throughout history.
The resources dedicated to International Women’s Day are seemingly endless, emphasising the passion with which people around the world support the campaign and the importance placed on giving women true equal rights and opportunities.
Perhaps most importantly, FireClass and Tyco is supporting the growth of a women's network across the business – seeing this as a key way of making sure our women have the opportunity to progress their careers and FireClass continues to be a great place for them to work in the future.
For the Tyco Women’s Growth Network (WGN), this annual event is a reminder that the recruitment, retention, full participation and advancement of women are business imperatives. Please join us in celebrating the day and supporting this year’s theme – The Gender Agenda: Gaining Momentum.
