Why Shifting Gender Balance in Wealth Brings Ripple Effects
Today at Dell Technologies, we join the world to celebrate International Women’s Day (IWD)! This global celebration is all about how we can collectively work together to recognize women’s achievements, raise awareness against issues like bias, and create a more gender-balanced world.
Advancing gender equality in the workplace is an important part of Inclusiveness, one of our Sysco Values. It is also a key business imperative that helps us better reflect our customers and communities.
International Women’s Day is a global celebration of the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. Recognized first in 1911 in Europe, International Women’s Day is now observed around the globe in support of advancing gender equality.
International Women's Day (March 8) is a global recognition of the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day is also an annual call to action for accelerating gender parity, as evidenced by this year's theme, #BalanceforBetter. The theme underscores the need for gender balance in the workplace and government, gender balance in media and sports coverage, a balance in the distribution of wealth, and gender balance in all other areas of society.

Today is International Women's Day, a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. This year’s theme #BalanceforBetter focuses on how gender balance is essential for economies and communities to thrive.
Celebrating 30 years of the Women’s Business Ownership Act
Given that the number of women-owned businesses has grown at nearly four times the rate of men-owned firms over the past 20 years — 28.5% vs. 7.5% — it’s nearly incomprehensible that just 30 years ago a woman needed a male cosigner to obtain a business loan. That all changed in 1988 with the passage of H.R. 5050, the Women’s Business Ownership Act, a piece of landmark legislation that is the bedrock for policies, programs and public/private initiatives that continue to support businesswomen today.
