Cambridge Assessment employees and the Corporate Board have been taking part in a week of celebrations ahead of International Women’s Day on Sunday 8 March 2020.
Throughout the week, Cambridge Assessment has been celebrating the women that work for the organisation in a number of ways.
Two sponsors of Cambridge Assessment’s Women in Leadership staff network, Jill Duffy (CEO of OCR) and Fran Woodward (CEO of Cambridge Assessment English) were joined by fellow female senior leader, Christine Özden (CEO of Cambridge International Assessment Education), to discuss their inspirations, challenges they have faced in their careers and how a gender equal society could be created.
Employees globally participated by sharing photos using the #EachForEqual gesture to promote gender equality. Female employees have also been celebrated throughout the week by having their photograph, job title and a fact about themselves shared both around the organisation and externally on social media to showcase and amplify the incredible women working at Cambridge Assessment.
The week culminated in a short celebration at Triangle, Cambridge Assessment’s global headquarters, where staff got together to commemorate the day with purple balloons and cakes with purple icing, highlighting the colour of International Women’s Day.
