Happy International Women’s Day

Happy International Women’s Day from Buckland! International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

Today and every day, Buckland is proud to be a certified women-owned enterprise and strives to ensure that employees and customers alike are all understood and equally represented. Buckland is proud to have an executive team predominantly comprised of women and has exemplary diversity and equity among the senior leadership. According to the Globe and Mail[1] only 25 of the top 500 companies in Canada are led CEO’s who are women. Over the last 15 years the percentage of women in senior corporate positions in Canada has only increased from 14 per cent to 18 per cent with women earning 73 cents for every dollar earned by their male counterparts.  Buckland is proud to be a successful example of a woman led company and is thrilled to celebrate this on International Women’s Day. #iwd2016  #internationalwomensday
