IWD 2022: #BreakTheBias and create a world of gender equality!

3B Scientific GmbH

International Women's Day (IWD) – observed to celebrate the achievements of women in various spheres of life. It is also a day that brings to fore the problems women face. With this year's theme #BreakTheBias, women give voice to this critical issue of gender bias. Although women have been walking shoulder to shoulder with men for centuries together and built the civilization that we enjoy today, women still face gender inequality in different realms of life, be it families, at work, or community in general. As a society and in our capacities, we must #BreakTheBias and offer an environment free from all forms of biases, judgments, stereotypes, and restrictions, allowing to attain maximum potential. Therefore, echoing similar thoughts, 3B Scientific also takes certain measures to create a work environment that does not discriminate.
Why Gender Equality? 
Gender equality is when people of all genders have equal rights, responsibilities, and opportunities. Everyone is affected by gender inequality – women, men, trans, and gender diverse people, children, and families. It affects people of all ages and backgrounds. Gender equality prevents violence against women and girls. It is essential for economic prosperity. Societies that value women and men as equal are safer and healthier. Gender equality is a human right. [1] 
How does 3B Scientific ensure gender neutrality?
Women employees contribute significantly to the success of 3B Scientific in advancing medical and healthcare education and consisting talented female workforce in diverse roles & functions in leading, executing, and collaborating to fulfill the company's goals. 
As shared by Kerstin Damaschke, Head of Human Resources at 3B Scientific, "We are happy to report that our company is an equal opportunity provider, 51% of our employees are women. We employ women irrespective of their age, career breaks, or backgrounds. They can be fresher’s or women who want to restart their careers after a maternity break or other reasons. As a policy, we do not discriminate against our employees based upon their genders in any given circumstance. We are promoting a culture where we offer uniform pay scales and positions that depend only on qualifications and experience. Therefore, defying all stereotypes, we have talented women leading functions like finance, marketing, and supply chain. An experienced woman manages our production facility in Dresden. Interestingly, an all-woman painters' team is employed there to hand-paint our products." 
"Another key factor for us, as an employer, is to ensure that the women in our organization can maintain a healthy work-life balance. For this, we offer flexible working hours and the option to work from home. There is no shift work in our production and logistics. In Dresden, production employees can even start work at slightly staggered times; this helps mothers with children in particular."

As a society, what can we do to #BreakTheBias?

International Women's Day is not the only day we must focus on this very important topic, but we must try to make a difference in our everyday lives with simple acts and behavioral changes.
