The women of VOICE
On International Women’s Day, March 8, we wish “half of the world” strength, success and happiness. We would like to honor female activists, especially female prisoners of conscience, who have sacrificed so much to fight for a better society.
The role of women is increasingly affirmed, in the family, society and at VOICE. Gender equality is one of the values that VOICE focuses on. This is reflected in our male/female ratio as well as policies that concern women.
Currently, we have two female Board members out of five people. On average, about 50% of our interns are female. This rate is also applied to our staff, including key positions such as department directors and managers. We also have policies, such as health insurance and maternity leave for both genders.
We recognize and appreciate the role of women in promoting social change. Therefore, ensuring equality in accessing opportunities for both sexes is indispensable at VOICE.
Once again, we wish you a meaningful International Women Day.
