Women’s day special
Without ‘Her,’ even Hero is 0
International Women’s Day (IWD) has been celebrated since the early 1900s. Although, humanity has made great progress since then, the problem of gender inequality still continues around the globe. The UN estimates that women only make 77 cents for every dollar earned by men across the globe, for work of equal value. Women comprises over half the population, yet occupy less than 23% of parliamentary seats globally. And in many countries women still suffer excessively from poverty, lack of education, and lack of access to health-care. Women are also severely underrepresented at senior management and leadership levels. A single digit % of Fortune 500 companies had a female CEO in 2016; a number that’s declining instead of improving.
Better late than never; recent years have seen a huge surge in the number of businesses around the world celebrating IWD. There is growing recognition that women’s rights affect us all, and that we need to strive for more female representation at all levels of business. Gender diversity in the workplace produces real benefits. Several studies have shown that a gender-diverse workplace is good for financial returns, employee engagement, innovation and reducing turnover. Gender diversity can also help your business resonate with a wider customer base.
Recognizing the importance of this day, we at, Beyond Exclamation, are celebrating International Women’s Day with our special issue titled, “Celebrating Her Stories Beyond Glass Ceiling.” In this special issue, we celebrate her stories, limitless imagination, joyous dreams and boundless strength to our readers. It’s not something we had to choose to do, it’s our responsibility and we know it.
Hi, I’m Stefania – Aka the Techy Girl! I’ve been building WordPress websites since they revolutionized how we create beautiful, functional, affordable websites. I started building websites back in the day when we had to hand write the code!!!! WordPress is much easier. Web design started as a hobby of mine and in 2010 I turned it into my passion and full-time business. When I work on a website, it’s because I love working on websites. I teach people how to use their websites and make them beautiful and functional through my courses and online sessions. If you need help or have questions, I would love to chat!
I help people create websites that work for them! I work with entrepreneurs, coaches, and bloggers who are frustrated by technology by teaching the tech and making it easy. I believe creating a website should be easy, affordable and hassle-free. I believe your website should work for you. Every website has a purpose. I want to help you find and develop that purpose. Your website should be beautiful. It should be a reflection of your most beautiful self. Learn more about me here
