South Africa is very fortunate to have a long history of strong, influential women who have sacrificed so much for our democracy and our people. In fact, the world is filled with stories of remarkable women who’s sacrifices have shaped the world. It is this unwavering commitment and dedication that we collectively celebrate in South Africa today.  One of the battles women have had to face, and are still facing today – is the battle for their rights, specifically the right to be considered equal amongst men. At EOH we are very focused on ensuring that all staff are treated equally, regardless of gender, age, race or religious beliefs.  The mandate of our employment equity forum, is to ensure that we remain neutral and fair; whilst our commitment to transformation ensures that this agenda is expedited.

Women’s Day is a national celebration of the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. Join us in taking this opportunity to not only acknowledge but show our respect and gratitude to all the incredible women in our lives for their tireless commitment both at work and at home.

Let us all recognise the contribution women make in our lives, not just today – but every day.  Consider your actions towards your female colleagues, wives, sisters, daughters and mothers and ensure that you treat them with dignity, respect, kindness and above all as peers in every aspect of your life.

Happy Women’s Day
