Celebrating our Women in Waste – International Women’s Day 2023 

Join us this week as we raise awareness and #EmbraceEquity this International Women’s Day, 8 March 2023.  Imagine a gender-equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. A world that's diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Collectively we can all #EmbraceEquity. 

Join us all this week as we celebrate our talented Thalia #WomenInWaste 

International Women's Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

Thalia Waste Management Communications and People Director, Sarah Moyo said:

“We’re supporting International Women’s Day as collectively everyone everywhere can strive for women's equality and continue to make positive gains. 

“We are extremely proud of the women we have working in waste for us at Thalia and will be shining a spotlight on our female colleagues over this week. However, in the workplace in the UK as a whole, there is still a need for more progressive mindsets and inclusive behaviours to be forged.” 

The day has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. Prior to this the Socialist Party of America, United Kingdom's Suffragists and Suffragettes, and further groups campaigned for women's equality.

Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere.
