08 March 2022
International Women's Day (IWD) is celebrated on 8 March each year in more than 100 countries around the world. It is a day to reflect on and celebrate the social, political, academic, economic and cultural achievements of women. It also marks a day for acknowledging the challenges faced by women and is a call to action to continue to press for gender parity. This year’s theme for IWD is Break the Bias.
To celebrate IWD 2022, Baringa employees are making their own personal pledges on how they will take action to break the bias in their personal and professional lives. We have created Baringa's Wall of Pledges to highlight some of the steps we are taking to create an equal workplace and world. Imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination. A world that’s diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women’s equality. Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias.
Creating awareness, breaking the bias.
Every moment of our existence has shaped the people we are today. Those moments will then intertwine with our next experiences to form the people we are becoming. Beyond transforming ourselves, these moments, if shared, create a butterfly effect that can transform other people too. By telling the stories of the path we’ve walked, we have an opportunity to create change all around us.
Adrian Bettridge is Managing Partner at Baringa. Here he tells his personal ‘back story’ and what it’s taught him about diversity and inclusion.
