International Women’s Day Message 2024

As we celebrate International Women’s Day in the year 2024, this year’s theme, “Invest in Women and Accelerate Progress,” resonates profoundly with the values we hold dear within JALGO. It is a call to action, a reminder of the untapped potential that lies within our workforce, and an opportunity to propel our collective growth by investing in the empowerment of women.

Investing in women is not just a moral imperative; it is a strategic decision that leads to tangible benefits not just for our union but the society at large. When we empower women, we empower families, communities, and the entire workforce.

Studies consistently show that companies and organizations with diverse leadership teams perform better, innovate more, and achieve higher levels of success. It is not just about equality; it is about maximizing our potential and that is a key goal of the union.

Hence, let us reflect on the steps we can take to invest in women within our organisations.

This investment goes beyond monetary considerations; it involves creating an inclusive and supportive environment where women can thrive. It means providing equal opportunities for training, professional development, and career advancement. It means breaking down the stereotypes and biases that may hinder women’s progress.

Therefore, let us engage in conversations that challenge out-dated norms and promote inclusivity. Mentor and support your female colleagues, helping them navigate the intricacies of the workplace. Together, we can create a culture that celebrates diversity and equality, fostering an environment where everyone can thrive.

So, as we celebrate this International Women’s Day, be a catalyst for transformative change within our union. By investing in women, we not only uphold the principles of equality but also pave the way for accelerated growth and success. The strength of our union lies in the collective talents and contributions of every member, regardless of gender. Let us stand united in our commitment to a future where every woman within our organisations has the opportunity to reach her full potential.

Happy International Women’s Day

Chairperson, Women’s Organisation
