International Women’s Day 2022: Here’s to strong and amazing women at Stayflexi

Dear women,

You have come a long way from finding an inspiration to becoming an inspiration. You have been successfully able to #BreakTheBias by being an excellent contributor in every sector that we can probably think of.

The tech industry has always been notorious for its glass ceiling that women have been unable to access. And this has obviously stemmed from some systemic issues of workplace biases that mere lip service cannot get rid of. 

However, at Stayflexi, we aim to go beyond superficial changes. So on this International Women’s Day, we’re shining the spotlight on the amazing women that we have with us.  Here we will hear directly from the women of Stayflexi and how their experience in the company has been. Take a look at some of the women strengths of our company who have successfully managed to make their mark in this sector. 

They have been working in the tech industry for multiple years. Therefore, there is much to learn from their experiences in that regard as well. We also got to know the various factors that motivate them to go on working in this industry. 

Has Stayflexi  dreaded that glass ceiling? Or did it really manage to get rid of systemic issues of workplace biases? These narratives by our female employees will make the answer evident. 

The theme of 2022’s International Women’s Day is: “gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow.” What this means is that gender equality is not just the urgent need of the times, it has far reaching implications for the future as well. 

This is exactly why Stayflexi has not just limited itself to some superficial changes to make tiny allowances for women in a man’s world. Instead, Stayflexi believes in changing the overall work culture so that it can be shaped around the needs of the female employees. 

So, this International Women’s Day let’s hear from some of the women of Stayflexi directly!
