At Frasers Property, we believe in the business value of diversity and we want the people delivering our properties to be just as diverse as the people who’ll live, work and shop in the places we build. We’ve been working hard toward achieving gender balance in our workforce, with an ‘all roles flex’ policy, generous parental leave provisions and a target of 40% women in the CEO-3 cohort by 2020.
This week, we live-streamed a panel discussion on all things gender with our CEO Rod Fehring, General Manager of Residential Victoria Sarah Bloom, General Manager of Residential Queensland Cameron Leggatt and graduate Ashley Raso. Just a few years ago Ashley’s high school career advisor told her “building is for boys”, proving there’s some still some work to be done, so on International Women’s Day we join the global celebration of the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.
March 8 is International Women's Day, a global celebration of the achievements of women and a call to action for accelerating gender parity. This year’s theme is Balance for Better.
No one government, NGO, charity, corporation, academic institution, women's network or media hub is solely responsible for International Women's Day. International Women's Day is all about unity, celebration, reflection, advocacy and action - whatever that looks like globally at a local level. But one thing is for sure, International Women's Day has been occurring for well over a century and continues to grow from strength to strength.
Why purple? Internationally, purple is a colour for symbolising women. Historically the combination of purple, green and white to symbolise women's equality originated from the Women's Social and Political Union in the UK in 1908. Purple signifies justice and dignity, and green symbolises hope.
