This year the official theme for International Women’s Day is #choosetochallenge and we are really excited, and being totally honest also rather proud, to share our plans for the day and throughout the whole of International Women’s Week.
This is the first IWD since we launched our internal ASCEND program and made our action-led pledge as Founding Partner Signatories of the Diversity and Inclusion Charter.
Created by and for women in our business, ASCEND is a group-wide initiative designed to connect women across our global offices regardless of seniority, function, or team, with very clear objectives to attract, retain, and progress more women within the Amoria Bond Group.
We’re going big this year, in celebration of the progress we’ve made so far, and in recognition of our ongoing commitment to ensuring we provide a truly inclusive workplace.
Monday: ASCEND LIVE on International Women’s Day
ASCEND events are usually internal, but we are delighted to announce our first ever ASCEND LIVE event at 11.30am on Monday 8th March, dedicated to attracting, retaining, progressing and empowering women in STEM.
Hosted by our very own Natasha Crump, ESG Director, and Leah Brown, Group L&D Manager, our expert panellists include Katie Howard Cross, Co-founder of Eva Talent; Felicity Wingrove, Founder of Zen Communications; and Amy Steel, Associate Director at Coalesce Management Consulting.
Join us for what promises to be an insightful discussion packed with practical takeaways on:
As Natasha said: “These ladies know their stuff and it will be well worth taking a bit of time out of your day to join them!”
It’s a totally free and open event, designed to be fully inclusive to anyone working in or thinking about a career in STEM – regardless of gender, so register today at https://bit.ly/3rfXrv2
Social Media Takeover:
From Tuesday onwards, each day of the week female employees from different teams and functions across our international offices will take over Amoria Bond’s Twitter and Instagram accounts, to show what it’s like #InsideAmoria! Ever wondered what makes us the best recruitment company to work for, as recognised by every major recruitment industry awarding body? Now’s your chance!!
Through the week you’ll get to know our IR35 Guru, Jenny Walsh, a Lead Consultant based in our Manchester office; Veronika Koteva, one of our Internal Recruiters in Amsterdam along with her fellow IR colleagues Laila Pezaro and Ashleigh Sperlinga, who can give you an honest and fresh view of what you can expect in your first few weeks at Amoria Bond having joined us in January; Rena Bahadori, our L&D Specialist, will give you a glimpse into why our multi-award-winning L&D program deserves its reputation as the best in the industry; and on Friday, Senior Principal Consultant Nora Vanessa Trost, will share a day in the life of a recruiter in Cologne…and maybe even reveal some of her tips and tricks for success as a high performing recruiter!
ASCEND IWD2021 YouTube Playlist:
SHARE and EMPOWER are two of the core principles of ASCEND, and so we’ve curated an IWD2021 playlist on YouTube of resources to connect, inspire, encourage, and develop.
Taken from our dedicated ASCEND portal, we’ll be sharing and recommending a great mix some delivered by our own inspiring employees, and some by external experts; from TED Talk’s to podcasts, and blogs to videos, it’s worth checking out.
