Friday the 8th of March is the day.

International Women’s Day is a time to celebrate women’s achievements, acts of courage, and reflect on progress made. It is also an opportunity to call for change, and to highlight how that even though the past hundred years for women have been momentous, and have left us more liberated than ever before, we still have a long way to go.

This year’s theme is #BalanceForBetter because a balanced world is a better world.

On the day to celebrate women all around the world, we want to celebrate the fabulous team of women here at Bliss Hotel and across the Waterfront. We have a female-centric space with a team of inspired and motivational women, with our female staff out weighing the males with 113 women to 73 men.

Globally, men occupy more board seats than women, with male dominance at senior levels, whereas our board of directors is dominated by women, along with our senior management team. So we are proud to be challenging the norm, after all, making waves is what we do here.

In an age where many companies are forming initiatives to improve equality in the workplace and hire more women, we are already ahead of the curve. (What’s new?)
