As a part of First Intuition I am proud to belong to an organisation that employs over 175 people across our UK centres, two thirds of whom are women. Women are fully represented at board level and in the management and ownership of the businesses that make up First Intuition.
Our balanced workforce allows us to consider things from different perspectives, to be flexible in our approach to a work/life balance and to provide opportunities for all staff to develop in their chosen career.
When things are not in balance they become unstable. When organisations are looking to grow, to adapt and to respond to the challenges we all face in a dynamic environment, balance allows us to react with a firm basis on which to stretch and grow.
By being in balance, we are not dominated by a single perspective or point of view but rather a shared vision as to an organisation, where people thrive irrespective of their gender rather than in spite of it.
For International Women’s Day 2019, First Intuition has decided to raise money for Young Women’s Trust. We support their belief in an apprenticeship system that offers young women the best opportunities and makes the most of their talents. Young Women’s Trust have an ongoing campaign for apprenticeships that work for women, with focus on skills and development as a route to employment.
So please join us in celebrating International Women’s Day on 8th March 2019 and if you are able to, please donate
