International Women’s Day 2017

20 april 2018
Gender diversity in the workplace stems from the conscious appreciation, representation and acceptance of men and women in Veolia Singapore, and “Women @ VES” (W@VES) aims to further this bold movement towards gender parity in conjunction with the International Women’s Day on the 8th March, 2017.

The International Women’s Day commemorates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women since the 1900’s, and the campaign theme for International Women’s Day 2017 is “Be Bold for Change”, which strives for a more sustainable, gender inclusive and gender-balanced planet 50-50 by 2030.

Therefore, as One Veolia, we need to commit, support and empower from various angles to advance gender equality by promoting the employment of women and eliminating discrimination in employment and occupation. As a member of the Veolia Family, we need to believe and internalize the need for change in our attitudes, and correct these biases through externalizing it in our behaviours!

Living in a world that recognizes one’s achievements through their commitments and dedications is no longer a fantastical dream, but a reality we can create together. In recognition of their devotement, all our beautiful ladies in Veolia Singapore received a little pot of succulent, signifying the resilience and vigour of life they have brought to our Veolia family. Remember, Be Bold for Change!
