International Women’s Day 2023: Embrace Equity

March 8, 2023

Posted in: WATSON Views

The theme for this year’s International Women’s Day – Embrace Equity – is especially close to our hearts here at WATSON.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion is an integral part of WATSON’s DNA and incorporated in every engagement we undertake. Our firm is woman-founded and women-led, with women making up over 75% of our Senior Leadership Team.

Recently, we completed a CEO search for One Girl Can, an organization whose mission is to create opportunities for young women through a holistic model of education, mentorship, and training, and this year the WATSON team celebrated International Women’s Day by working through One Girl Can to sponsor a scholarship for a third-year high school student in Kenya. We are humbled to be able to help this incredible young woman access equal opportunity to education.

And while equal opportunities are a huge step in the right direction, we also recognize that to reach gender equality, opportunity must be tied to equitable action. Let’s act to embrace equity together, today and all days.
