On International Women’s Day and every day, we #EmbraceEquity and are committed to breaking down barriers that stand in the way of allowing people to thrive. We asked our colleagues to share their thoughts on how and why they embrace equity at work:
“Working at Enterprise has allowed me to connect with employees to embrace equity along with the differences that everyone brings into the workplace. This helps us connect with our community, our customers and engage our employees.”
Leigh, HR Director, UK and Ireland.
“Being from Greece was always a challenge to blend in with the locals in UK and Ireland. Enterprise helped me personally by giving me the opportunity to learn and help others that are facing the same issue. The learning process is ongoing and started through awareness days and events back when I started in the region covering Scotland and Northern Ireland and it was evolved during my time in Ireland when I became part of the Diversity Equity & Inclusion committee.”
Panos, Accounting Manager, Ireland.
“Enterprise allows me to participate in diversity events to show support for everyone across our business. I want to represent my family and my community and be successful and Enterprise gives me the platform to do that. It’s really important to embrace equity because we all deserve a chance to be our best selves.”
Chantel, Accounting Supervisor, London and Southeast England.
Working at Enterprise has allowed me to embrace equity in the workplace by promoting awareness and the importance of equity to my employees around me. I think its important in a leadership role to inspire and share your own experiences in order for people to relate and be open minded.”
Claire, Area Manager, Northeast England.
“Equity is a term known as a universal principle. More than that, equity should be intrinsic. For me it means respect, dignity, acceptance, equality and justice”.
Mary, Management Trainee, Spain.
“In Enterprise, every voice counts and we’ve learnt to listen.”
Marvellous, Assistant Manager, Ireland.
“Enterprise has shown me the importance of #embraceequity, especially in the last few months. The Female Leadership Development Workshop is a great example of how our Enterprise colleagues share their experiences, challenges and tips to support other women at our company in their career planning. The shared conversations are not only very inspiring to me but also motivate me for personal and professional development. We like to go the extra mile for all our employees and support them individually. We do this for instance by adapting the work equipment according to their needs.”
Jenni, Talent Acquisition Specialist, Germany.
“We will challenge gender stereotypes, discrimination and bias”
Joaquin, Implementation Specialist Senior, Spain.
“Enterprise has allowed me to embrace equity in the work place by coaching and engaging others around me day to day and beating stereotypes. Enterprise allows me to be a mentor and advocate for women in the work force and look out for those around me, recognising that talent and skill doesn’t look and behave in one way.”
Hayley, Branch Manager, London and Southeast England.
“The women in our company who achieve their goals with determination and strength inspire me every day. My opinion was wanted from day one! Due to my background, I understand how in many parts of the world this equality is not yet up to date, which I was fortunately able to experience privately as well as professionally at Enterprise, therefore: #EmbraceEquality for all women in the world! I wish you all congratulations on International Women’s Day❤.
