Steensen Varming have throughout this week celebrated International Women’s Day and will continue the celebration of female empowerment throughout the month in acknowledging Women’s History Month.
We stand together with UN Women and the United Nations in celebrating under the theme of DigitALL: Innovation and Technology for Gender Equality. Despite progress, a persistent gender gap in digital access still exists, limiting women’s ability to fully leverage technology’s potential. Women’s underrepresentation in STEM education and careers remains a significant obstacle to their participation in technological design and governance. Additionally, online gender-based violence, coupled with a lack of legal resource, often forces women out of the digital spaces they do occupy.
The United Nations Observance of IWD recognizes and celebrates the women and girls who are championing the advancement of transformative technology and digital education. It calls on governments, activists, and the private sector to continue their efforts to create a digital world that is safer, more inclusive, and more equitable.
The hashtag #EmbraceEquity is a good reminder of the long road ahead and the work that is yet to be done, equity is an aspiration that we must pursue every day.
Steensen Varming is proud of all of the women we have as a part of our team and the great work they contribute every day.
