International Women’s Day – Weekly Update

Ken Meyer, SHRM-SCP, SPHR | Principal, KWM HR Consulting LLC

As we stand on the threshold of International Women’s Day, let us embark on a journey of celebration, reflection, and action. In the tapestry of human progress, women have woven threads of resilience, determination, and unparalleled grace. We honor their triumphs, acknowledge their struggles, and reaffirm our commitment to championing equity in all forms.
In the corridors of HR, we wield the power to shape cultures, redefine norms, and ignite change. As stewards of inclusion, belonging, equity, and diversity, we bear the responsibility to foster environments where every voice is heard, every talent is nurtured, and every dream is within reach. Let us not merely pay lip service to gender equity but embody it in our policies, practices, and principles.

International Women’s Day is not merely a date on the calendar; it is a clarion call to action. Let us seize this moment to dismantle barriers, challenge biases, and empower women to ascend the echelons of leadership. Let us pave the pathways where none existed, amplify voices that were silenced, and forge a future where equity reigns supreme.

As HR professionals, we are not just architects of organizational change; we are architects of societal transformation. Let us lead by example, inspire with empathy, and ignite the flames of progress that will illuminate the way for generations to come.

Together, let us stand shoulder to shoulder, hand in hand, as we embark on this noble crusade for equity. For in the tapestry of humanity, every thread counts; every story matters; and every woman deserves her rightful place in the sun.

Happy International Women’s Day, dear colleagues. May our efforts today pave the way for a brighter, more inclusive tomorrow.

Be well.


President, New York City SHRM
