Better the balance, better the world

At Hyve we support a gender-balanced work place, and more importantly, a gender-balanced world.

International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated globally on March 8th every year, championing the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. When IWD was founded in 1911, it was only celebrated in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. Today, IWD is celebrated all over the world.

The theme of this year’s IWD is #BalanceforBetter. The campaign promotes greater gender-balance in all areas of life. We should all strive for a gender-balanced office, government, media coverage and address the gender pay gap. Balance is vital for economies and communities to thrive and reach their full potential.

Gender equality isn’t just a women’s issue, it’s down to all of us.

On International Women’s Day, Hyve is not only championing equality in our own workforce but also addressing the wider issue of the lack of diversity in the IT industry.  This year’s theme of #BalanceforBetter reinforces the need for diversity in our industry.
