International Women's Day
On Sunday 8th March, women across the world will be honouring International Women’s Day. Drusillas Park, East Sussex, will be marking the day with a Twitter take over that celebrates their female staff.
From 9am on Sunday 8th March, Drusillas will be giving an exclusive look behind the scenes as they tweet about their amazing female employees and the roles they fill at the zoo.
Drusillas Director and Head of Marketing, Cassie Poland, commented: “Gender equality is hugely important to Drusillas, and we are extremely proud to have a very high number of women working in managerial and supervisory roles at the Park. In fact, our managerial team has an exactly even divide with 50/50 split of men and women.”
International Women’s Day is designed to celebrate women’s achievements whilst calling for gender equality. The day has been observed since the 1900s and is now honoured every year on March 8th. The theme for this year’s International Women’s Day is #EachForEqual, which aims to end sexism and gender inequality.
Drusillas Director and Head of Marketing, Cassie Poland, commented: “We are really pleased to count ourselves among those leading the way for gender equality and we are exceptionally proud to have such an amazing group of women working for us.”
“We must of course also recognise and celebrate the hard work of all our male employees as well. We strive to have balance in our staffing, and to appreciate and acknowledge each individual member of staff regardless of gender. For us it doesn’t matter who you are or where you are from, what matters is your dedication and character, and we feel very privileged to have such a hardworking and lovely workforce.”
