‘An equal world is an enabled world’ #EachforEqual #IWD2020
It’s the run-up to International Women’s day 2020 (IWD2020), a day many businesses, industries alike celebrate the achievements of women and female empowerment. With only two days to go, Red Robot is celebrating early, it’s the first time since its establishment that we can celebrate this day, thanks to our Marketing Manager.
The day has been observed since the early 1900s, it is now recognized by the entire world on the 8th March each year. It brings together a vast amount of different female organizations, corporations, and charities to mark a fantastic historical event.
Since it’s the first time celebrating, we sent our Marketing Manager Jenny Jackson to the Assist IWD2020. Where she, and many others connected and network, alongside celebrating and marking the day.
When posed the question, ‘what empowered you?’, Jenny explained “not just one thing empowers me, its many things, being able to have gone and achieve not 1 but 2 degrees was amazing, something I never thought I would be able to do. From a young age, I conquered learning difficulties, acted as a young carer and faced many significant situations that have shaped me as a person.” She continued “although it was difficult, I wouldn’t change it, it has helped me evolve as a human being, re-emphasizing that I am capable of anything, I just want to keep learning and working on becoming the very best version of myself. It empowers me to have the chances that I have had, and I make sure to hang on to these chances throughout life”.
When asked what advice would you give to women who want to work in business she replied: “not give up, everything is possible, there’s a tonne of different stories of empowerment and women’s achievement that should be considered, gender doesn’t reflect your capabilities. You are your own person and you decide what your future holds.”
We want to thank Jenny for all the hard-work she has put in since joining our team.
