The International Women's Day campaign for 2017 asks people to 'Be Bold for Change' and promotes gender equality in the world. The World Economic Forum predicts the gender gap won't close entirely until 2186. This is too long to wait. So around the world, International Women's Day provides an important opportunity for ground breaking action that can truly drive greater change for women.
Shenhua Watermark places great importance on the contribution their female staff make to the Company and since their arrival in Gunnedah in 2008 it has become a tradition to celebrate International Women's Day by presenting each female staff member with a gift at a special morning tea.
Gerry McDonald, Shenhua HR Manager, said, "The function was held to extend the appreciation of the Company to their female staff for their dedication to work and their contribution over the last twelve months. Although only a small organisation Shenhua Watermark female employees make up 30% of our workforce and provide valuable input to the Company's operation."
