Today is International Women’s Day, a worldwide event that celebrates women’s achievements – from the political to the social – while calling for gender equality. The theme of this year’s event is #PressforProgress motivating and uniting friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive.
Great Places Housing Group is committed to advancing equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI). Our aim is to recognise and value difference across both our customer base and our colleagues; it is about fairness in its broadest sense, not limited to those protected characteristics covered by legislation. We’re fully on board with International Women’s Day and gender equality – check out this interview with Ursula Norman, one of our electricians, in which she reflects on what it feels like to be a female in a male-dominated industry, and how she’s enjoying bucking the trend.
