At WorkTango, we believe that Women’s History Month is an important time to celebrate the significant achievements and contributions of women throughout history. It is a time to recognize the remarkable women who have challenged gender stereotypes, broken barriers, paved the way for future generations, and to celebrate the incredible women within our own organization.
WorkTango stood behind our commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging (DEI&B) by scheduling a range of programming honoring Black History Month for February 2023 and Women’s History Month in March of 2023. Whether you need ideas for your own DE&I programs, or are just curious about how WorkTango recognized Women’s History Month this year, here’s a rundown of what we did for our 2023 programming and its impact on our organizational culture.
1. Women of WorkTango Spotlight
Each week during Women’s History Month, our company took the opportunity to highlight a few of the amazing women who work here at WorkTango, their contributions to our business, and quotes from their managers about how impactful their efforts have been to the organization. We appreciate each and every one of our employees every single day, but our Women of WorkTango Spotlight helped strengthen our understanding of just how influential and important our female employees are.
2. Featured Woman in History Spotlight
Each time we highlighted a Woman of WorkTango, we also took the opportunity to educate our team about an influential woman in history. Featured women included Aretha Franklin, Sylvia Rhone, Elizabeth Blackwell, and several others. Sharing slides about each helped team members learn more about the impact that women have had in our world and society.
3. Women’s History Music Playlist
During March, WorkTango shared a playlist to which employees could add their favorite
songs by women or with lyrics that emphasize the importance of women. We played songs from this playlist at the beginning of all company meetings in March to set the tone and to share a piece of Women’s History through music.
4. Women Embracing Equity Panel
The WorkTango Culture Committee organized and hosted a fireside chat in honor of Women’s History Month. The panel of women consisted of WorkTango female leaders, mothers, and advocates that discussed what it’s like being a woman in the workplace, and how they have combated past experiences with gender bias to get to where they are now. This inspirational conversation was well-attended and very impactful for all those tuning in.
By highlighting the vital role that women have played in shaping WorkTango’s business, broader history, and within society as a whole, we can promote gender equality and encourage everyone to work towards a more inclusive and equitable world. We feel so lucky to have such amazing, strong, and intelligent female team members here at WorkTango, and we certainly wouldn’t have been able to get to where we are today as a company without them.
So, from WorkTango to all women out there, thank you for being you, for doing what you do, and for inspiring us every single day!
