像许多其他雇主一样，SSC Laser不断努力帮助建立欧宝体育客服电话更加性别的工作场所和团队。今年我们庆祝International Women’s Day, where the theme is #choosetochallenge, highlighting the importance of challenging gender inequality in the workplace head-on.
欧宝体育客服电话SSC激光is committed to celebrating the achievements of the women who help make us one of the UK’s leading laser cutting sub-contractors and want to further highlight the need for gender equality in the workplace.
To celebrate IWD21, we took a little time to sit down with some of the team to discuss what International Women’s Day means to them and how they’ve used the #choosetochallenge ethos in their careers.
Nadia (Customer Sales & Support)：日常生活本身就是一个挑战。生活忙碌，在我的丈夫每周几天离开家工作时，忙着一个家庭和一个职业。
Olivia (Customer Sales & Support): The biggest challenge of my career to date is changing into a completely new industry as I only joined SSC last week. Whilst exciting, it has also been nerve-racking at the same time, although everyone has immediately made me feel really welcome and a part of the team.
Tracey (Customer Sales & Support): Setting up a new division in a company where the staff and customers were predominantly Afrikaans speaking. At SSC, learning as much as possible about metals to help provide a high-quality service to our customers.
凯瑟琳（客户销售和支持）: Balancing Mum life and work life. I want to be the best Mum ever to my little girl, but I also strive to succeed and continuously progress at work.
The biggest challenge of being a woman in your industry?
凡妮莎：Being accepted and valued for my capabilities. Appreciation for driving change for the benefit of business, without being stereotyped as an “interfering female”.
玫瑰：I have worked in the engineering industry previously. I was the only female of the 48 students in my electronic engineering course at university. I was also the first and only female production engineer in my previous workplace. The challenge has always been to prove that I can do the job. For me, it helps that I’ve always been competitive with myself.
凯瑟琳：Not just in our industry but all round. Women should be able to stand up for themselves, be passionate about a cause and express their feelings positively or negatively without being accused of being “too emotional” or “hormonal.”
玫瑰：When I was juggling full-time work, taking care of my primary school children (at the time, my husband was also working away from home) and taking on PRINCE2 & APMP qualifications. It was a tough few months, but I came away from it, achieving what I set to complete and even being offered to become a PRINCE2 trainer.
Olivia:如果我有信心在我做或完成,I want to be challenged further to achieve more.
凡妮莎：Challenging stereotypical behaviours, guiding individuals into taking a different view.
纳迪亚：I chose to send my children (one boy, one girl) to The JCB Academy, predominantly engineering-based. Previously engineering was a very male orientated career, but with the help of academies like this, there are many more females stepping into these positions and thriving.
凡妮莎：I’ve seen a difference over the years for the better. Unfortunately, I don’t believe we’ll ever fully eradicate gender inequality. We just have to make sure people know we’re here & we won’t be silent.
凯瑟琳：I think we have come a long way over the last few years, for example, large companies choosing to publish the salaries of all staff members; however, there is still a lot to be done!
What are your thoughts on having more leadership teams with greater equality?
凡妮莎：I don’t feel we necessarily need more women in leadership. I think these statements just fuel stereotypical comments. When looking at Leadership, whoever it may be male, female or other, they should be in that position because they’ve got the capabilities & worked hard to get there.
凯瑟琳：A celebration of how far we have come regarding women’s rights and equality and highlighting the work that still needs to be done going forward.
纳迪亚：Put your doubts aside and believe in yourself.
Olivia:Take on challenges even if they seem intimidating at first; they may become one of your proudest moments.
凡妮莎：Never be afraid to challenge other people’s views. Always be true to yourself.
