The aim of the IWD 2023 #EmbraceEquity campaign theme is to get the world talking about Why equal opportunities aren’t enough. People start from different places, so true inclusion and belonging require equitable action.
Equality means each individual or group of people is given the same resources or opportunities.
Equity recognizes that each person has different circumstances, and allocates the exact resources and opportunities needed to reach an equal outcome.
Hear from our Co-Founder Jackie Crooks on IWD 2023.
How does Kinsetsu embrace equity as an innovator?
On International Women’s Day we take enormous pride in our journey challenging the status quo as a female led tech company. We are committed to a culture where everyone can thrive, empowering our staff by encouraging open communication, continuous learning, and by offering flexibility. We don’t accommodate bias, we challenge it, and we show other women, and men, that it’s right to do so. Kinsetsu drives innovation in diverse sectors and that is possible because of our strong team dynamic, where employees are valued and appreciated. This has been fundamental to achieving positive business outcomes.
Why do you think diversity in the workplace is so important?
We can’t fully grow without being exposed to a diversity of thought, people with different talents, skills, and knowledge, all collaborating and innovating. At its heart Kinsetsu is a team of diverse people who are happy to grow together.
Happy International Women’s Day 2023!
