“Better the balance, better the world” - BDO supports International Women’s Day
We live in exciting times and our world is undergoing unprecedented change. The BDO story is an amazing one, and our achievements to date give us a strong foundation – but we make sure always to look to the future. That’s why we support International Women’s Day and its underlying premise that Balance drives a better working world.
The #Balanceforbetter campaign theme is clear that “Balance is not a women's issue, it's a business issue. Gender balance is essential for economies and communities to thrive.”
BDO is a global organisation that employs more than 80,000 people across 162 countries and territories and plays a crucial role in building trust in the work that we do and in serving a wide community of stakeholders.
At BDO, we understand that diversity is good for our people – and it’s good for business. BDO firms around the world are committed to supporting our professional women and driving their success through a range of women’s inclusion strategies. These include professional development activities and social networking events and offer BDO women in all professional roles the opportunity to support each other, speak candidly and share advice about real business issues. At every level, BDO women are supported in building relationships and creating well-defined career paths.
BDO firms create working environments that are flexible and supportive, as well as professionally rewarding. It is this balanced approach that helps our people achieve their dreams - and ultimately delivers better solutions for our clients.
