Job Of The Week From Companies That Care
March 8th 2018
International Women's day is upon us! In 1909, 15,000 women marched through the streets of New York demanding improved pay, shorter hours and voting rights. At PowerToFly we're all marching together by pushing for inclusive workplaces that lead to gender equality. It's our mission to work only with companies who understand that workplace equality is achievable- look at OpenTable whose female CEO has pledged to fill her company with 50% women by 2020, and Dow Jones who hired a woman at nine months pregnant to lead their tech team. Check out a more expansive list of companies we think are making the working world a better place for women- better yet, follow them on PowerToFly and make your voice heard by following companies that care.
