International Womens Day 2017

IWD 2017 campaign theme: #BeBoldForChange

Mr Scaffold wishes to acknowledge the cause and the challenges behind the message of International Womens Day.

Mr Scaffold boasts a high ratio of women amongst the staff who are not physically involved in scaffolding operations.

The contribution of women to our company is invaluable and irreplaceable.  Mr Scaffold supports the ideals of parity and equality of conditions and unconscious bias within the workplace.

The theme is one that everyone can get behind and support.

The following is an extract from


International Women’s Day as a vehicle for change, is it possible?

Last year, organizations and individuals around the world supported the #PledgeForParity campaign and committed to help women and girls achieve their ambitions; challenge conscious and unconscious bias; call for gender-balanced leadership; value women and men’s contributions equally; and create inclusive flexible cultures. From awareness raising to concrete action, organizations rallied their people to pledge support to help forge gender parity on International Women’s Day (IWD) and beyond.

But the World Economic Forum predicts the gender gap won’t close entirely until 2186. This is too long to wait. Around the world, IWD can be an important catalyst and vehicle for driving greater change for women and moving closer to gender parity.

What if the world truly stepped up to take bold action?

Will you #BeBoldForChange on International Women’s Day 2017 and beyond by taking groundbreaking action that truly drives the greatest change for women.

Each one of us – with women, men and non-binary people joining forces – can be a leader within our own spheres of influence by taking bold pragmatic action to accelerate gender parity. Through purposeful collaboration, we can help women advance and unleash the limitless potential offered to economies the world over.

We have urgent work to do. Are you ready to #BeBoldForChange this IWD 2017 and beyond?
