Today is International Women’s Day and A Day Without A Woman #BEBOLDFORCHANGE @womensday #IWD2017 #InternationalWomensDay #ADayWithoutWomen

Happy International Women’s Day! In addition to celebrating International Women’s Day here at Adafruit, we are also recognizing A Day Without A Woman, which is an international effort led by the organizers of January’s Women’s March on Washington. As a 100% Woman-owned business, Adafruit is fully committed to equality and dignity in the workplace. We value our employees not just today but everyday, together we make Adafruit what it is.

Here at Adafruit we are dedicated to championing the work of Women in STEM. We are also focused on making Adafruit a great place to work by offering important benefits to our employees (paid family leave, affordable health insurance, paid time off for charity work, 401ks and more). This is something Adafruit stands for everyday and is constantly focusing on. We believe you are what you celebrate and that the best way to lead is by example.

From the A Day Without a Woman FAQ page:

Q: How can businesses (and households) participate?

A: Businesses can participate by closing for the day or giving women workers the day off. Even more important than the symbolism of standing with women on March 8th, companies should do an audit of policies impacting women and their families. By ensuring that women have pay equity, a livable wage and paid leave, they are ensuring that their long-term actions match the actions on the day of the strike.
