In recognition of International Women’s Day 2021, which is being commemorated globally today (March 8), we join the global community in challenging inequity and stereotypes and encourage businesses across all sectors to continuously strive for gender equity in the workplace.
Let us also challenge ourselves to collectively support and advance gender equality in all spheres in the interest of building a more harmonized workplace, community and society.
As we #ChooseToChallenge inequity, stereotypes, and biases at all levels, we salute all women within the BCCI membership – across all sectors and industries.
We salute the women of the BCCI Council, Committees and Chairs, and the BCCI Secretariat, who continue to play a key role in advancing the work of the Barbados Chamber and the development of the local business sector.
We also join the global community in celebrating the achievements and strides of all women in Barbados, across the Caribbean and the rest of the world.
May we #ChooseToChallenge gender inequity, stereotypes and biases through our daily actions and decision-making.
May we #ChooseToChallenge existing barriers and strive to continue to lend our voices to influencing change in our work environment and in every sphere of our society.
Executive Director, BCCI
