International Women’s Day 2021

by | Mar 8, 2021

We are proud to support the International Women’s Day mission to raise awareness via meaningful narrative, resource and activity to help accelerate gender parity. This International Women’s Day we are celebrating the achievements of our Process Lead Beth Younger.

‘Beth is a key member of the embracent emerging technologies team, a great team player with a huge desire to learn and share.  She has recently been promoted to lead the Process Excellence team where I have no doubt she will help to shape and grow the team, their products and capabilities – We are so glad that Beth is part of the embracent team and it is great to see her growing within the company.’ Gary Eaves, Chief Delivery Officer

In keeping with this year’s theme #ChooseToChallenge Beth believes that ‘If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you.’ The thought being a challenged world is an alert world and from challenge comes change.

IWD believes we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions. We can all take a stand and choose to challenge inequality, call out gender bias and question stereotypes. The organisation encourages people to commit to seeking out and celebrating women’s achievements. At embracent, we’re delighted to be doing our part to help forge a more inclusive world.

To hear more about Beth’s experiences and advice, watch our interview with her.
