TORONTO, ON, MAR. 8, 2019/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: “It is encouraging to be apart of an incredible team, men and women who continuously support positive changes and strive for equality in the professional world. Maya Angelou has a quote which I think captures the essence of where we once were and what we strive for now today. ‘History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again’. At 30FE I believe in the top class talent we bring to the forensic industry, and I am proud to work with the women of this firm.”
30 Forensic Engineering would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge and thank our talented women for their dedication and for making 30 FE the firm it is today!
Jeff Reitsma, Vice President & Practice Lead, Multidisciplinary Remediation states “We are proud to have strong and empowered women working at 30 Forensic Engineering and both in our personal and professional families. There is much work to be done with respect to gender balance and our firm is strongly committed to bridging these gaps. 30FE is dedicated in our support for all women striving to make differences for the better, big and small, in our community and around the world. Happy International Women’s Day 2019!”.
