On Sunday 8 March, the world celebrated IWD2020 – which this year aims to highlight the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. It also marks a call to action for accelerating women’s equality.
The workplace can sometimes be one of the areas which demonstrates a glass ceiling – limiting women in their careers.
Gill Brooks, Head of HR at Touch Medical Media explains how a culture of empowerment, which actively promotes women to Senior
Leadership roles, has seen the Touch Medical Media go from strength to strength.
“As a woman in a Senior Leadership Role, I’m pleased to say that gender at our workplace does not take preference; everyone is valued and listened to.
Working at Touch Medical Media has been a breath of fresh air. The culture is open, honest and we all support one another. There is an open-door policy – right up to the CEO.
The workforce at Touch Medical Media comprises more than 70% of women – eight of whom occupy senior leadership roles, including two Managing Directors, Head of Group Operations, Head of Medical & Editorial, CFO, and myself as Head of HR.
Touch Medical Media is a place of opportunity, equality, and respect for fellow colleagues providing everyone with opportunities to grow both professionally and personally.
On International Women’s Day I am proud of our exceptional team and the Company I work for.”
At Touch we take gender equality seriously. If you would like to find out more about a company who value the achievements of women and set out some action for equality, get in touch.
