It’s International Women’s Day and, all around the world, people are celebrating women, discussing equal rights and telling inspiring stories about the meaningful and strong women in their lives.
At Mailjet, we believe we are responsible for creating positive change, and when it comes to women’s rights and opportunities, it can’t be a one-day-only initiative. Yeah, getting the guys to sing Beyonce’s “Who run the world” at our karaoke nights is a start, but there are many other things a company can do to be a great place where women can succeed.
What makes us so special? Our superheroines tell you all about it!
5 Stories That Show How Mailjet Supports Its Women
Empowering strong female leaders
When asked about female role models, most women could probably name several historical figures, but unfortunately, many of them don’t have the opportunity to see women in leadership roles within their own companies. At Mailjet, we place heavy value on equal opportunities and our leadership team, with 50 % female ratio, is a prime example of the amazing things that can happen when diversity is a top priority.
“Mailjet values female talents and equal opportunity, and the 50% female ratio in the top management team clearly shows that. As one of the chief executives in Mailjet, I am humbled by the responsibility to serve as a role model to other female colleagues across our offices worldwide.
I also feel empowered by Mailjet to lead female team-building activities and find it very easy to build a support network of female colleagues within the company who can advise, mentor and help me both professionally and personally.”
“Let’s face it: being a woman in the male-dominated world of deliverability (any tech industry, really) is tough. How many times have you been the only woman in the room? The strong women who came before us fought hard to give us the chance for our voices to be heard. Now is the time for us to embrace this effort, and for women to become the next generation of leaders in tech.
At Mailjet, a good idea is a good idea. Period. It doesn’t matter if the idea came from a man or a woman. That’s how it should be everywhere else.”
