International Women’s Day: Equity in the Workplace

by AthleticoLeave a Comment

March 8th signifies International Women’s Day (IWD), a global day celebrating women’s social, economic, cultural, and political achievements. It is one of the most important days to celebrate women’s accomplishments and raise awareness about women’s equality.

To celebrate this day, we asked leaders to speak on the Importance of Equity in the Workplace. Together, we can take action for a more fair, inclusive, and diverse future.

At Athletico, we believe in the power of advocacy and are committed to building an inclusive environment for all our patients and employees.

Equity in the workplace refers to actionable steps to ensure and sustain equal, unbiased outcomes. i.e., advancement, inclusion, opportunities, treatment, etc., for all employees, including those with different circumstances. True equity denies marginalization.

Great teams need a diversity of perspectives and ideas, so it is vitally important for everyone to have the opportunity to grow and contribute. I feel very fortunate that Athletico values equity in the workplace, but there is no finish line, and we must push to expand opportunities for all our team members daily.

I have been very fortunate throughout my career to be influenced and inspired by dozens of female leaders, starting with my mother, who ran the sales and marketing functions for our family business when I was growing up. As a leader today, it is even more critical to bring a diversity of thoughts and experiences by building a team that represents our patients, team members, and the communities we are so proud to serve

Gender equality isn’t about winners and losers; it’s not zero-sum. It’s about creating workplaces that enable people to show up authentically and generously share their unique skills, talents, and experiences. It’s about recognizing that everyone benefits when we create equality for women. And let’s be clear, it’s about remaining competitive as a desirable place to work, grow, and thrive.
