Meet our fantastic award winning women at RX
"To speak up against insensitive comments or treatment against gender or race. To allow others to speak their mind and truth. To teach and guide myself the importance of listening. It means women empowerment is celebrated and honoured globally. It means our voices are heard."
"IWD is an opportunity to celebrate women’s equality and emancipation. We are bound to raise awareness to create a world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. We want to sit at a table where everyone is free to speak up, regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, sexual preferences or disability status and where every point of view is acknowledged and accepted.
We want to give everybody the opportunity to shine for who they are and create a diverse and inclusive environment that recognises everyone is unique and needs different options to reach equity. We #EmbraceEquity on IWD to give a voice to all women that don’t have one and to women that have been suppressed for their voice. We celebrate the achievements of women aiming to create a better future for every little girl to become whom they want to be."
"Purple, green and white are the colours of International Women's Day. We choose purple that signifies justice and dignity and being loyal to the cause. We believe that feminism is not about giving women more authority as women are strong and independent already. The objective is to change people's perceptions of that authority."
Meet some of our women in tech!
Hoy no te voy a felicitar, no hay nada para celebrar. Hoy en cambio, te voy a reconocer. Voy a entender que nuestra sociedad está cambiando y que debemos aceptar, recibir, colaborar y dar la bienvenida a toda aquella persona con la que interactúo a diario.
Hoy, valoro tus capacidades, tus conocimientos, tus aportaciones y te pido que no dejes de estar presente, no dejes de luchar por tus sueños, no pares de crecer ni de aprender.
Hoy también, uno mis manos a las tuyas y a las de toda persona, para apoyarnos y acompañarnos, para crecer juntos, para caminar en una misma dirección que nos haga sumar, aportar y enaltecer la naturaleza de todos. Recuerda siempre que podemos no pensar igual, podemos tener nuestras diferencias de opinión, pero debes saber, que daría mi vida por defender tu derecho a diferir y discernir.
No importa como eres, como vistas, como te muevas, lo que importa eres tú, solo tú. Ven, acércate este y todos los días, se tú. También te pido que me permitas hoy y siempre, ser yo. Con esa autenticidad podremos entonces celebrar y festejar el triunfo de la inclusión, el triunfo de la diversidad, el triunfo de la vida!!!
Today I will not congratulate you, there is nothing to celebrate.
Today instead, I will acknowledge you. I will understand that our society is changing and that we must accept, receive, collaborate and welcome everyone we interact with daily.
Today, I value your capabilities, your knowledge, your contributions and I ask you not to stop being present, not to stop fighting for your dreams, not to stop growing and learning.
Today also, I join my hands to yours and to those of every person, to support and accompany us, to grow together, to walk in the same direction that makes us add, contribute and enhance the nature of all. Always remember that we may not think alike, we may have our differences of opinion, but you should know that I would give my life to defend your right to differ and discern.
No matter how you are, how you dress, how you move, what matters is you, only you. Come, approach this and every day, be you. I also ask you to allow me, today and always, to be me. With this authenticity we can then celebrate and celebrate the triumph of inclusion, the triumph of diversity, the triumph of life!!!
Happy #IWD2023! Across RELX, we actively #ChooseToChallenge gender bias and inequality. We broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women's achievements. Personally, I like to celebrate our achievements. It´s amazing to see how much progress towards equality we made in the last 25 years! It´s a day to remind us about the importance of continue supporting initiatives that drive gender equality and empower women.
