An equal world is an enabled world.

At Prophet, we believe that it takes a collective group of individuals to shift culture, and that each person plays a part in creating a more gender equal world. This year’s International Women’s Day theme, #EachforEqual, aligns closely with Prophet’s goal of becoming a more inclusive and equal workplace – one person at a time. At the frontlines of advancing gender equality, Prophet’s Women in Leadership (WiL) team works to create opportunities throughout the year to celebrate women’s achievements, raise awareness against bias, drive inclusive behavior and accelerate the advancement of women in our workplace.

This International Women’s Day, our WiL team encouraged Propheteers to participate in the #EachforEqual campaign by asking, “How will you forge a gender equal world?” These are their answers:

“I will work with younger girls through Girls on the Run to empower the next generation of strong, female leaders, encouraging them to achieve their goals not only in running, but also in making our world a better place. I want a culture that embraces “like a girl,” not one that uses it as a criticism.”
