/ Alessandri celebrates International Women´s Day

8 March, 2021

At Alessandri we are committed to reducing the gender gap, with environments of equity, co-responsibility and inclusion. Today March 8, the 41 women who work in Alessandri wish all women a happy day and join the message of UN Women, “Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world”, by celebrate the efforts made by women and girls around the world in defining a more equal future and in recovering from the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Women are at the forefront of the battle against COVID-19, as front-line and health sector workers, as scientists, doctors and caregivers, yet they get paid 11 per cent less globally than their male counterparts (…) When women lead, we see positive results. Some of the most efficient and exemplary responses to the COVID-19 pandemic were led by women. And women, especially young women, are at the forefront of diverse and inclusive movements online and on the streets for social justice, climate change and equality in all parts of the world. Yet, women under 30 are less than 1 per cent of parliamentarians worldwide”.
