International Women’s Day is Friday, March 8th and the theme for this year’s celebration is #BalanceForBetter.

Balance is not a women’s issue, it’s a business issue. Gender balance is essential for economies and communities to thrive.

At Nest Wealth, we believe gender-balance is one of the most powerful things to embody within our culture. In celebration of all the incredible women across the country, we developed a video of the women in tech here at Nest Wealth to tell their story.

“The race is on for the gender-balanced boardroom, a gender-balanced government, gender-balanced media coverage, a gender-balance of employees, more gender-balance in wealth, gender-balanced sports coverage…”

Balance In Personal Relationships

Gender equalities should exist with friends and family. It’s important for people to feel supported by their loved ones in the spaces they feel safe and secure.

Balance In Boardrooms

Ensuring everyone has an equal voice and a voice that becomes supported is critical for any working environment. We believe in the power of diversity and the value in our people. It’s one of the ways we continue to create balanced perspective and stronger ideas.

Balance In Finance

It’s important to create #BalanceForBetter in finance. Research shows that women have historically been paid less and, as a result, are unable to keep retirement as a top priority with their finances. Stats also prove women are living longer than men, leaving more women at a higher risk of poverty in their retirement years.
