Esri Ireland partners with everywoman to join new Tech Hub
On Monday 8th March Esri Ireland celebrated International Women’s Day and shared a StoryMap of some of the brilliant women who work in the company. In the StoryMap, female employees shared their advice to women starting their career in tech, acknowledged their female role models and reflected on what they think has helped them get so far in our careers. The StoryMap also announced Esri Ireland’s first Employee Resource Group, Women @ Esri Ireland. Launched in 2020, Women @ Esri Ireland is a grassroots organisation for employees, including women and allies, to come together to make Esri Ireland a more diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace. The group discusses issues such as the gender pay gap, increasing female representation at every level across the organisation and how women have been impacted with the transition to remote working.
To continue the celebration of International Women’s Day, Esri Ireland are pleased to announce their partnership with everywoman and their support of the new everywoman Tech Hub.
“everywoman is a global platform for advancing women in business. Working to close all gender opportunity gaps, so that women can equally engage in the business world. Founded in 1999 by Karen Gill MBE and Maxine Benson MBE, everywoman has supported thousands of women worldwide in establishing businesses and progressing their careers. Working with leading corporations and organisations - using diversity insights - it can demonstrate the improved productivity and performance achieved when women and men work together equally and respectfully. Through its cross-industry awards and forums everywoman has created thousands of female role models and male allies, inspiring generations of future leaders.
The Tech Hub is a new open-to-all online destination to support career growth for women in technology roles. This new platform allows members to connect with peers and role models, find mentors, attend training and access critical career development content. The online portal offers a blend of social networking, online events and a content portal that will enable women working in technology roles to supercharge their careers and get peer support.
In the current climate, forging meaningful connections between women working in technical roles is more important and, in many ways, more challenging than ever. It’s a top priority for the team at everywoman, so we’re building on our 21-year history of advancing women in business, with this online hub as a logical next step.”
