Throughout our 178-year history, we’ve witnessed women rising to extraordinary challenges every day, often without getting nearly the credit they deserve.
For so many women, there really is no end to a "workday," because there’s always more work to be done. We see how much women give of themselves for their friends, families, employers and communities. And on this International Women’s Day, we honor and applaud them for it.
Over the past year, we’ve all had challenges to overcome. Some far more critical than others. The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored our reliance on women both on the front line and at home – all while spotlighting the inequalities that must be addressed urgently1.
And we’re committed to doing our part.
As an employer and corporate citizen, we know we have a vital role in contributing to a more equitable world. That’s why we’ve set ambitious goals that include achieving gender parity by 2030. Informed by our employees, customers and communities, we have a clear roadmap to get where we want to be: a place of equality.
Because equality isn’t a privilege, it’s a birthright. And we won’t stop until you have what’s rightfully yours.
For all you do to make the world whole, we celebrate you today and every day.
