International Women’s Day: #BeBoldForChange
This week we’ll be joining thousands of women (and men) around the world in celebrating International Women’s Day (IWD). This year IWD is calling on the masses to #BeBoldForChange; to make a commitment, individually and as organisations to progress the gender agenda, and to celebrate the achievements of women around the world. At j9etc. we’re committed to creating and maintaining a workplace where women are supported, provided with opportunities, commended for their contribution and initiative, and fundamentally empowered.
Confronted by the choice many women face; work / children, work / family, work / life, Jannine (aka J9) decided to be bold, and j9etc. was born. Today, j9etc. is a company that remains steadfastly connected to the values on which it was founded. We are committed to flexibility; because healthy work / life balance makes our team more productive, more creative, and more engaged. We believe a successful workplace must consider the whole person, not just the ‘employee’; because happiness and success go hand-in-hand. We are devoted to the continued happiness and success of the talented women who make j9etc. what it is; an innovative workplace that has created an environment where women are valued, not penalised, where women can achieve professional success without cost to their dreams, passions, and families, and where the future is filled with opportunities, not restrictions.
