International Women’s Day has a long and proud history of celebrating women’s achievements, raising awareness against bias and taking action for equality. For us, at Hudson RPO, it presents an opportunity to demonstrate our support for International Women’s Day and, more importantly, reflect on how we as an organisation can affect change for women in not only our organisation but across our clients’ organisations.
This year’s International Women’s Day theme, #Choosetochallenge, got us thinking. We realised there was a strong connection between what we do as recruitment specialists and the role we play in challenging bias, smashing stereotypes and ensuring equity across the recruitment process. Because of the work we do, this puts us in a unique position to influence and advocate for real change.
We asked our people to participate in International Women’s Day 2021 by sharing their pledge images with us, helping create our incredible collage. And united as an organisation and spanning our client network, we #ChooseToChallenge:
As a global business we will continue to embrace an inclusive culture of diversity and belonging and are committed to equal opportunities for all. We take pride in the diversity of our workforce which spans over 20 countries across the globe and the significant percentage of women in leadership positions as well as in our teams more broadly.
