IWD 2022 Inclusive Workplaces: The Key to A Sustainable Tomorrow

Back to events
25 March 2022 12:30 - 13:30 Online

​The UN Women theme for IWD 2022 is “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow”, recognizing the contribution of women and girls around the world, who are leading the charge on climate change adaptation, mitigation, and response, to build a more sustainable future for all. 

However, despite the proven connection between diverse and inclusive workplaces and business profitability and performance, the 2022 business world has still not levelled the gender equity playing field. Certain workplaces and work models are still not adapted to fit current standards for diverse women, who should be able to participate equally, confidently, and independently in their day-to-day. As employees all over the world are coming back to in-person offices, how can companies begin to create solutions for women, keeping an inclusive and open mindset of the diverse women in today’s society? 

In this fireside chat, three female leaders will discuss the growing importance of Inclusive Design. Why is inclusive design important? Where can we start? How will it help women be more productive in the long run of their careers?  

Our panelists from Equinix, DuPont, and Microsoft will answer these burning questions and will show us why inclusive design is needed to build a better workplace and most importantly, why it is the key to a more sustainable tomorrow.
