Today we celebrate International Women’s Day, when the world acknowledges the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.
The first International Women’s Day (IWD) took place in 1911 and was supported by more than 1 million people in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. Today, IWD belongs to everyone, everywhere – including everyone at Intercom!
Today and every day we celebrate the achievements of women because it makes life better for everyone. When women succeed, we all succeed.
For International Women’s Day 2019, we have created Intercom on Women’s Day – a microsite that celebrates the women at Intercom. It’s key to our values that we create a diverse and inclusive workplace where people can belong. We’re proud of our efforts to overcome the negative impacts of unconscious bias.
We think the future is exciting and want to work together to ensure that everyone has access to opportunity and growth. As our COO Karen Peacock wrote, “when we seek to bring out the best in each other, it makes all of our lives richer and better.”
We have also hosted a week of events in our global offices where we welcomed strong and inspirational women speakers, celebrated female-led businesses, heard from our own fearless female leaders and hosted dynamic and motivational discussions.
