TORONTO, ON, MAR. 8, 2021 /insPRESS/ – International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. Also, the day is about unity, reflection, advocacy and a call to action for accelerating gender parity. International Women’s Day (IWD) has occurred for well over a century, with the first gathering in 1911 and today IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere.
Stephanie d’Obrenan, Director – Human Resources at 30 Forensic Engineering states: “The fact that we have not yet achieved absolute equality is somewhat astounding but does speak to the work that must occur to move a mountain. I am incredibly proud of the women that reside within both my professional and social circles who are undoubtedly rising to be the leaders of our future. On a personal note, I continue to be inspired by women role models who have taken to social media and podcasts etc. who deliver messages of empowerment and equality – Cathy Heller, Elena Brower, Allyson Byrd, Brene Brown to name a few. My advice to the next generation of women/women who identify as women is that being feminine and being powerful are not mutually exclusive. They can coexist. But also, that you don’t need to be feminine to be a ‘woman’ or to be powerful. Your power comes from being you- whatever that looks and feels like.”
Jeff Reitsma, VP & Practice Lead, Multidisciplinary Remediation states “I remain proud and humbled to work alongside such a diverse and talented group of women here at 30 Forensic Engineering. As colleagues and equals, we continue to challenge our assumptions and approaches to how we operate, and in turn we discover new and valuable ways to delight our clients and improve our workplace and profession. There remains much work to do, but we are dedicated in our support for all women striving to make differences world-wide. Happy International Women’s Day 2021!”
