Celebrating our female colleagues on International Women's Day 2022
8th March 2022 : PMC celebrated International Women's Day on 8th March 2022 with the theme of #BreakTheBias.
This year on International Women's Day, discussions focused on highlighting and challenging biases and misconceptions, breaking down stereotypes, and celebrating the differences to create a more inclusive and equal world.
Our PMC India team was joined by the team from Mpower Consultants, Vadodara. MPower is an all-women organisation that focuses on and supports women’s mental, emotional, and physical health. It dedicates all its efforts, time and energy to making a strong positive difference every day.
The session included various activities and focused on how to accept ourselves unconditionally. In particular, how to influence and be influenced, tactics to live consciously, how to distinguish between limiting and empowering beliefs, as well as how to draw healthy boundaries.

In the UK, we shared access to a webinar run by our EAP partner, Health Assured, focusing on women’s mental health, the challenges faced in day-to-day life, and ways to look after mental health.
When reflecting on #IWD2022, Stacey Wernham, Junior Project Manager, shared, “Over the course of my 16-year career at PMC, I have worked with some amazing women who have inspired and taught me how to move forward to reach my personal and career goals. The PMC family always supports, encourages and believes in me, and my fellow female colleagues.
PMC had always been committed to providing equal opportunities for all our employees. Talking about this year's theme, PMC CEO Rich Lowe explained,
Breaking the bias is all about confronting stereotypes and norms and challenging the way we do things. We have fantastic people at PMC, and we have brilliant female role models. However, if we are open, honest, and direct, we have much more to do to ensure we are supporting the growing careers of all our people in the same way. It starts with dialogue. Let us ensure this International Women’s Day turns open dialogue into tangible action. For me, our learning and development agenda is a great place to start, as it is where we can develop career paths for our people that celebrate diversity and inclusion.
