It's International Women's Day!

Today is International Women’s Day, so we’d like to thank all our colleagues who identify as women for the impactful work we they do for the people we support!

While International Women’s Day is an opportunity for us all to celebrate the achievements of women in our lives, in the workplace, and throughout history, it’s also an important chance for us to speak on gender inequalities, and get talking about the importance of equity.

Here at Everyturn, we’re always working towards our goal of having an organisational culture that is supportive, inclusive, collaborative, and equitable.

We’re proud to have such a significant female presence at Everyturn, including 68% of our management colleagues – women who make a difference to the lives of the people we support everyday.

We’re passionate about championing difference and we value how each of our experiences shape and positively impact the work we do. We often say that our people are at the heart of everything we do, and we really mean it.

Over the past couple years, we’ve introduced a number of policies, network groups, and opportunities to increase gender equity at Everyturn, including:

  • Menopause policy
  • Menopause network group
  • Carers’ network group
  • Learning and development opportunities, including apprenticeships in leadership and nursing
  • Pregnancy loss policy
  • Enhanced maternity, paternity, and adoption pay
  • Transgender awareness training
  • Gender identity policy
  • Hybrid and flexible working

“Even in my induction period, I stopped reading and shouted ‘YES, these people get people!’ when I saw the Menopause Policy! You have no idea how much that meant/means to me!” – Lisa, Community Development

We were also so pleased to officially be named as a Great Place To Work® once again in 2023, following an anonymous survey across the organisation. In this survey, it was great to see that 95% of our colleagues strongly agree that people are treated fairly on the basis of their gender.

“From investing in workspaces and facilities, amplifying our colleague voice, delivering true career progression through a huge learning offer, to having a real and meaningful focus on wellbeing, our people are at the heart of all that we do.” – Sarah, Chief People Officer

This survey also helped us identify the areas we can keep improving as an organisation. Click here to read more about our Great Place To Work 2023 accreditation.

This International Women’s Day, we encourage everyone to amplify and listen to the voices of women, and take action towards tackling gender inequality.
