LexisNexis® Risk Solutions, the Cardiff-headquartered global information solutions provider, is working with local charity Cardiff Women’s Aid to raise awareness of the key issues facing women in Wales, both in the workplace and at home this International Women’s Day.
Whilst discrimination against women and young girls is diminishing in our modern world, gender inequality continues to hold women back, in some cases depriving them of basic rights and opportunities. LexisNexis Risk Solutions is looking to change attitudes and drive change through
its International Women’s Day event.
This year, the business will be hosting a series of workshops and discussions at its Cardiff Bay headquarters debating some of the biggest topics facing women today, including recognising imposter syndrome and the shortfalls of not having a diverse workforce. The event is open to all employees and is intended to empower both women and men to think differently and encourage the confidence to fight gender imbalance.
As part of its ongoing support of Cardiff Women’s Aid’s efforts to detect and prevent violence against women and girls, LexisNexis Risk Solutions will also be encouraging attendees to donate items to Cardiff Women’s Aid, that can subsequently be shared with women in need in the local area. The firm’s employees will also be volunteering up their skills to work with the charity going forward.
Sarah McQuaid, Director at LexisNexis® Risk Solutions, comments:
“At LexisNexis Risk Solutions, we are committed to empowering both women and men to fight gender stereotypes and create a workplace culture that allows all our employees to thrive. By shining a light on some of the biggest problems facing women across Wales and the wider world today, we hope that we will begin to change opinions and challenge stereotypes. Furthermore, by supporting Cardiff Women’s Aid, it’s hoped that we will be able to showcase the charity’s great work in the local community and extend our message of support at home and beyond.”
