In celebration of International Women’s Day this year, we asked a selection of our female colleagues a few questions around this year’s theme of #BreakTheBias. Continue reading to hear what Claire Radloff had to say
Imagine a gender equal world, what does that look like for you?
In a gender equal world men and women have equal power and opportunities. Women aren't overlooked in male dominated jobs, women have the right to vote worldwide and are seen as equals.
Have you ever experienced a time where a male counterpart was praised over you on a shared project? How did that make you feel and how did you address this?
Have you ever challenged gender stereotypes, discrimination and bias?
Yes, its important to stand up for what you believe in.
How will you be celebrating International Women’s Day?
By celebrating me :)
Why is gender equality important?
If people believe that they are worth less or their say has less weight as a specific gender, that will always have a significant negative impact on their lives.
Every human being should feel that they have fair and equal opportunities in life. They should also know that they have a voice and that should be acknowledged and respected, regardless of their gender.
Do you believe that gender equality in the workplace is improving?
Yes, although at a slow pace.
If you could share a piece of advice to your younger self about your career, what would it be?
You are powerful and you make an impact in this world, despite what society tells you.
