At Vita Liberata we are proud to support International Women's Day 2016 and their #PledgeForParity campaign. As a business, Vita Liberata employs over 70 people worldwide, 85% of which are female. Our founder and CEO, Alyson Hogg is a passionate advocate of feminism and believes in working towards a future of equality for women everywhere.

Women are present at all levels in our business and we encourage everyone to be a leader in their role, so we are lucky to be working in an environment where gender parity is a given. We are also mindful that there are many other women who do not receive this same level of equality, so for them we are joining the campaign and sharing our #PledgeForParity.

Why Celebrate International Women’s Day?

International Women’s Day is a celebration of the the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. While women have made major advances in terms of equality and rights since this day was first recognised in early 1900s, there is still a long way to go to secure gender parity in many areas around the world.

What is Pledge for Parity?

The World Economic Forum predicted in 2015 that the gender equality gap won’t close until 2133. The Pledge for Parity encourages everyone to consciously take a step to help achieve gender parity more quickly - whether to help women and girls achieve their ambitions, call for gender-balanced leadership, respect and value difference, develop more inclusive and flexible cultures or root out workplace bias.

"When I was very young my mother told me to always make sure I had my own source of income, that with this would flow the ability to make real choices for myself, unencumbered by the expectations of others. She was right."
