Coming together on International Women’s Day
#ChoosetoChallenge. This marks the theme for this year’s International Women’s Day, a global event celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women and raising awareness about equality.
Garbutt + Elliott believes everyone has an important role to play in forging a more inclusive world. Our values fully embrace this and so we’re genuinely proud to be celebrating International Women’s Day.
This is a day to celebrate the accomplishments of women around the world and Garbutt + Elliott will be particularly celebrating the important role of women in business and the Financial Sector.
Today we’re proud to have 104 female employees out of a total of 205 staff including 4 female partners and 2 female directors taking a leading role to drive our business forward. Recently, our Business Tax Partner Becky Maguire, was appointed to represent Garbutt + Elliott and the region’s professional services sector on the CBI Yorkshire & Humber Council. This is a fantastic achievement and a great opportunity to raise important issues and drive growth within our region.
Russell Turner, Managing Partner at Garbutt + Elliott says: “On International Women’s Day we celebrate all the achievements and successes of women across the world, whilst still recognising that there is so much more to do. Equality is a value that is not just a ‘nice-to-have’, it’s essential in today’s world if we want to work effectively together and be representative of everyone.
Here at Garbutt + Elliott, we have an inclusive environment where all people can thrive. Our ethos is that everyone should have the opportunity and support to be the best they can be. International Women’s Day is an ideal reminder that business must play an influential role in promoting equality and creating a more inclusive world.
