Embrace Equity: Celebrating Women in Business at OneDigital

For International Women's Day and beyond, let's #EmbraceEquity.

As we #EmbraceEquity for International Women’s Day 2023 and beyond, it's worth digging into the difference between equality vs. equity.

Equity isn't just a nice-to-have, it's a must-have. A focus on gender equity needs to be part of every society's DNA and it's critical to understand the difference between equity and equality.

  • Equality means each individual or group of people is given the same resources or opportunities.
  • Equity recognizes that each person has different circumstances, and allocates the exact resources and opportunities needed to reach an equal outcome.

At OneDigital, we embrace a workforce that is diverse and representative of the communities we serve. By taking a closer look at OneDigital’s women-centric statistics, we’re also celebrating the significant impact women make on this company every day.

As an African American woman, it’s important for me to feel supported and valued while at work while being respected as both an employee and as a person. Boosting diversity and gender equity in the workplace significantly benefits the organization so that everyone feels included and safe in their work environment. This leads to higher satisfaction and employee retention.

When you embrace equity, each individual can achieve their highest potential, and that makes the whole team better.

When it comes to equity in the workplace, the unaffected should be as passionate and motivated to make positive changes as those directly impacted. Every employee deserves a circle of inclusion and influence where they feel their voices are being heard. Commitment to developing a culture of equity is the key to growth.

- Julie Cape, Executive Vice President, OneDigital Enterprise

We bring our differences to the table every day, and the organizations who learn to embrace unique individuality will rise to the top by building a team that values our own passions and strengths and provides an opportunity those live out daily.

- Dan Maass, Principal, Senior Client Executive, OneDigital West Region

The road to gender equality is a journey and not a destination. We must continue to seek for understanding and recognize the contributions that women have made to our society. We must all continue to be purposeful, intentional and transparent and do our part in striving for equality.
