International Women’s Day 2023
International Women’s Day is a special occasion for us at Education Perfect. We’re proud to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women all around the world. We take this day to reflect on the progress we’ve made towards gender equality, and acknowledge the work that still needs to be done. The day is an opportunity to raise awareness about the ongoing struggles for women’s rights and to advocate for gender equity. We see International Women’s Day as a reminder that a more just and equal society is possible, and it inspires action towards achieving that goal.
Diversity, equity and inclusion
At Education Perfect, we’re leading the way with our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion by hiring many women in senior leadership roles and promoting a diverse female staff. In 2020, we launched the Mana Wāhine initiative to empower and support the network of women within our company. This program provides a platform for women to share experiences, ideas, and resources and our monthly kōrero (discussion) sessions bring women together to discuss specific topics and hear from experienced women. Our goal is to elevate and celebrate the success of individuals and foster a community of support – a crucial undertaking in a field where women are often underrepresented and undervalued.
Women in tech
The rise of women in tech is a trend that we are proud to be a part of. More and more women are pursuing careers in tech and breaking down barriers in a male-dominated industry. At EP, we’re committed to hiring and promoting women in tech. This commitment to diversity and inclusion is reflected in our hiring practices where we actively seek out and recruit women for leadership roles, and support their journey in the company. We recognize that women in tech face challenges such as bias and discrimination and consciously work to create a culture of inclusion and support.

We all win
Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is not just a moral imperative, it’s also good for business. Research has shown that diverse teams lead to better decision-making and improved business outcomes. Our success as a company is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our staff, including the many women in leadership roles.
Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is an example of how companies can create a more inclusive workplace. By promoting and hiring women in tech, we are breaking down barriers and leading the way towards a more equitable future. On this International Women’s Day, we celebrate the achievements of women around the world and recommit ourselves to creating an inclusive environment for all.
