As we celebrate International Women's Day today, I am proud to see how committed AMS is to promoting equity and supporting women in progressing their careers into senior roles.
It's my pleasure to lead our Women's Employee Resource Group at AMS. Our aim is to provide a space for conversation about equality, share ideas and initiatives but perhaps most importantly to take the time to celebrate our successes, together.
At AMS, we are committed to building a workplace culture that supports equity and empowers women to achieve their full potential. We believe that when women succeed, we all succeed.
We also understand that promoting equity and supporting women in their careers is not just the right thing to do, but it is also good for business. Diverse teams bring different perspectives, experiences, and skills to the table, which leads to better decision-making and improved outcomes.
Our executive team has an equal split of women to men and our wider senior leadership team has 59% female representation. In fact over 62% of our entire workforce is made up of women. These stats reflect that our commitment to advancing gender parity is not something we only consider once a year. The ongoing support of women and men across our organisation has helped us to create an environment where women's careers can thrive.
This year, the theme of International Women's Day is #embraceequity and we have planned some great activities to generate conversation, celebrate our AMS Heroines and share their stories, achievements and inspiration. From race, neurodiversity, war, family-life; women's voices and experience are rich, varied, and at AMS, they are heard.
