Housing group in pledge for women’s day

Incommunities’ workers showed their support for International Women’s Day (8th March) by making their own equality pledges.

They displayed their messages on a ‘pledge wall’ to highlight their commitment to promoting equality, tackling discrimination and celebrating women’s achievements.

The theme of International Women’s Day 2018 is ‘press for progress’ and a call to colleagues and communities to work together to achieve a gender equal society.

This year is even more significant as its marks the centenary of women’s suffrage which brought the women’s right to vote to worldwide attention.

The ‘pledge’ event at Incommunites’ Shipley base and organised by the housing group’s Equality Steering Group. Staff from Incommunities partners, Sadeh Lok, also ran a similar event at their Huddersfield base.

Geraldine Howley, Incommunities’ Group Chief Executive, said: “As an inclusive employer we are committed to promoting equality and diversity and helping both female and male staff achieve their ambitions.

“This year sees a host of events across Bradford over several days celebrating the contribution of women from all walks of life. Incommunities Group is proud to again be active partners in International Women’s Day.”
