International Women’s Day 2020
International Women’s Day is a time to reflect and celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.
Here at Horton International, we are passionate about diversity, we believe gender equality is not a women’s issue, it’s a business issue.
We caught up with some of the Horton International team to get their thoughts on International Women’s Day, #EachforEqual and how Horton International continues to work with our clients to create equal working environments.
An equal world is an enabled world.
Dr. Monika Becker, Business Unit Director for Horton International Germany shared: “We can actively choose to challenge stereotypes, fight bias and broaden perceptions. From my point of view, women can do even better in supporting each other, building networks and celebrating the achievements of their female colleagues and friends.”
Ani Närhi, Country Manager for Horton International Finland:
“How can we, as recruitment professionals challenge stereotypes and fight bias more?
Our newly formed promise to our clients is to include diverse candidates in all of our shortlists. From here on it will guide us even stronger than before. We can actively choose to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women’s achievements.”
Nina Ariluoma, Managing Partner for Horton International Finland:
“We all agree that diversity drives business performance. Yet there is a gap between the reality and business leaders perception of the progress.
I am passionately helping our clients to build truly equal environments – One leadership position at a time.”
Gemma Van Rooyen, Project Manager – Board Affairs & Business Operations for Horton Group International.
“Even though we have made huge progress when it comes to global equality for women, the fight continues. Women are still lacking in recognition and compensation, this has to change. We must all make a concerted effort to celebrate our fellow women’s achievements and support one another through our challenges.”
Amy Cutbill, Digital Marketing Manager Horton Group International
“I feel proud to be part of a company that works towards increasing the number of talented women placed in top leadership positions and believes, at its core, that diverse teams achieve better results.
