#BeBoldForChange with TÜV SÜD
Held annually on 8 March, International Women’s Day celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women. The official theme for International Women’s Day 2017 (IWD2017) is #BeBoldForChange. Around the world, many bold actions are already being taken to create a better, more gender-inclusive world. However, the World Economic Forum predicts the gender gap won't close entirely until 2186.
TÜV SÜD and its preceding organisations have a well-established tradition of promoting change for women and moving closer to gender parity. As an industry and an organisation, we’ve come a long way since the early days when women first became technical inspectors. Today, we believe that companies with diverse workforces are better placed to succeed. To this end, our Board of Management has committed to the Women@TÜV SÜD, a corporate initiative for gender balance created with the aim to increase the proportion of women in professional and managerial roles.
Bold actions change the world for the better
Forging a better working world is a bold mission. By committing to bold actions, we can all play our part in helping women advance. We are honoured to highlight 4 of our employees whose bold actions are actively driving gender parity within TÜV SÜD.
