Prime Employers for Women

Where Women Work makes all the difference

International Women's Day provides a perfect opportunity to get involved in forging women's equality in the workplace.

One of the biggest employer engagement days of the year, International Women's Day sees organizations amplify and reinforce commitment to helping build an inclusive world. Additionally, International Women's Day sees many organizations celebrate and applaud the work and achievements of women.

While International Women's Day activity escalates on March 8, Prime Employers for Women maintain a deep and continuous focus on equity, diversity and inclusion all year round as part of their values. Gender parity advocacy and action forms an important part of their corporate responsibility to employees, customers and wider community.

Increasingly, organizations worldwide are providing progressive policies, practices, benefits and support mechanisms so women's careers can thrive - and these workplaces can offer women appealing career prospects. Additionally, celebrating the work and achievements of women inspires further women to achieve their potential.
