WISE members and Ten Steps signatory companies mark International Women's Day
8 March 2016
WISE members and Ten Steps signatory companies are marking International Women's Day by renewing their commitment to the programme which focuses on the retention and development of female talent.
Executive sponsors are taking the time to sign and display their certificates and to promote awareness of the Ten Steps both in internal and external communications. The industry led framework has already been signed by 45 companies from Atkins (our first signatory) to Ramboll (our most recent).
The photo above shows Ramboll with the signed Ten Steps certificate.
Robert Arpe, Ramboll, Managing Director for the UK comments “Today is an important milestone in our commitment to encouraging women into this industry and to ensure they have the same prospects to develop their career. Our eclectic portfolio of world-class and award-winning projects is testament to the diversity and mix of skills and experiences of our people that we must continue to foster and proactively encourage”
