International Women's Day
Mazda Canada celebrates International Women’s Day 2018
Mazda Canada Inc. is a proud supporter of International Women’s Day. We believe in challenging conventions and support International Women’s Day as a time to reflect on progress made, to call for change and to celebrate the acts of courage and determination made by women everywhere. Members of our executive team share what this day means to them and how they will help drive progress forward.
Sandra Lemaitre, Director, Public Relations
“I am fortunate to live in a country where I am free to vote, have my own career and my independence. This day for me pays homage to everyone who fought for these rights. At the same time, I think about all the women globally whose basic human rights aren’t recognized. International Women’s Day reminds me to challenge myself and others to do more for equality through volunteerism, advocacy and solidarity.”
Brian McDougall, Director, Human Resources
“International Women’s Day highlights the fact that we still have work to do, but the silver lining is each one of us can be a champion of change. Respect and inclusivity are core to us at Mazda, and these values are key to allowing everyone to progress and achieve to their fullest. We know that our ability to succeed is strengthened when everyone has a chance to contribute.”
Amy Fleming, Director, Sales Operations
“For me, March 8th is about our shared responsibility to advocate for gender parity. Within both my professional and personal life, I want to be part of the drive that sees people succeeding because of their abilities, and not just because of their gender. It is important to me to be part of an organization that rewards people equally. We are all accountable.”
We can all make an impact on the path to gender equality. Whatever way you choose to celebrate International Women’s Day, we are happy to have you join us on the journey.
