International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women.

At CPL, women are currently under-represented in our engineering roles, but we are changing that.  We have engineering, manufacturing and administrative roles that can all be undertaken by women. We would love to see more women running our hi tech machinery and are willing to invest and train all staff to help develop an exceptionally skilled workforce. If you are ambitious and enthusiastic and seeking work in the St Neots area – contact us now and our HR team will get straight back to you.

Imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination. A world that’s diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women’s equality. Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias.

UN Women is promoting the theme “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow”, and call for climate action for women, by women.

“With the latest data, we now understand the vital link between gender, social equity and climate change, and recognize that without gender equality today, a sustainable future, an equal future, remains out of reach.

Women and girls experience the greatest impacts of the climate crisis as it amplifies existing gender inequalities and puts women’s lives and livelihoods at risk. Across the world, women depend more on, yet have less access to, natural resources, and often bear a disproportionate responsibility for securing food, water, and fuel.

As women and girls bear the burden of climate impacts, they are also essential to leading and driving change in climate adaption, mitigation and solutions.  Without the inclusion of half of the world’s population, it is unlikely that solutions for a sustainable planet and a gender equal world tomorrow will be realized”.
