International Women’s Day, celebrated annually on March 8th, is a time to honor and recognize the achievements of women worldwide. This year, the theme for International Women’s Day 2023 is “Embrace Equity.” This theme serves as an important reminder that we still have a long way to go in achieving gender equality in terms of rights and opportunity. 

What Can We Do to Embrace Equity? 

We can embrace Equity in our daily lives and communities in many ways. One way is by advocating for equal pay for women in the workplace – closing the gender wage gap – as well as investing in programs that promote female entrepreneurship and leadership development. Additionally, implementing initiatives such as flexible work hours or childcare support can make a big difference in helping working mothers stay employed while also caring for their families at home. Beyond these changes at an organizational level, individuals can also take action by educating themselves on social issues related to gender equality and supporting organizations that strive towards solving these inequities through donations or volunteering efforts. 

Embracing Equity is one of the main reasons Accountability launched a program for women returning to the workforce. “It was important to us to take action in creating opportunities for women,” says Joanne Miguel, Chief Product Officer of Accountability. “I know so many brilliant women who took a pause from work and are looking for opportunities to get back into the industry.” Accountability’s lean organizational structure is buoyed by a network of seasoned industry experts that add value throughout the customer journey. “This allows us to streamline operations without sacrificing expertise and skill. I’m really excited to work with our first group of women who have been accepted into this program.”

Selected participants can complete the certification requirements at their own pace. Once certified, participants join Accountability’s certified network of specialists and have the opportunity to support the financial transformation of innovative marketing and advertising agencies across the globe.

Certified Accountability specialists are carefully vetted and trained to ensure that Accountability clients get a consistent and high-quality experience throughout the customer journey.
