In 2024, International Women’s Day celebrates the theme: #InspireInclusion. At PLUS QA, we not only recognize but deeply appreciate the significance of creating an inclusive workplace for women. More uniquely, we understand the importance of extending this inclusivity into the realm of technology. Our commitment to creating an environment where women can thrive, innovate, and lead in the Technology space is part of our core mission aligning with this year’s theme of #InspireInclusion.

We are excited to use this opportunity to underscore our steadfast commitment to promoting gender equality and empowering women in not only technology but in all spaces.

Inspire Inclusion

In our operations, PLUS QA evaluates the treatment and involvement of women within our industry. True inclusivity goes beyond the physical presence of women–it also means amplifying their voices and perspectives. This ensures that women are not only heard but are also the drivers of ideas that make up the ideological fabric of PLUS QA.

What International Women’s Day Means to PLUS QA

As a woman and minority-owned company, our identity is not defined by a singular voice. Instead, it is the collective voices within our diverse team that shape us. We sought out insights from the women on our team, asking them to share what International Women’s Day means to them:

“It means a community of women recognizing achievements and success, while supporting and feeling strong together.”

– Patti, Senior Accessibility Tester

“International Women’s Day for me is a day to showcase the vital importance of all women in every facet of human existence, celebrating the achievements and advancements that have been made for women so far, and to highlight, acknowledge, and continue working towards the ideals that we have not yet reached or have fallen short of, particularly in terms of equality and inclusion.”

– Saoirse, QA Lead

“This day presents an excellent chance to revisit and reflect on the topics of women’s rights, justice, and equality, assessing our current status and progress in these areas.”

– Anna, Project Director

“International women’s day to me means celebrating women who support and empower one another for their achievements; especially after they were told they couldn’t do something.”

– Ashley, Project Manager

Advice for Aspiring Women in the Tech Industry

In alignment with this year’s theme, #InspireInclusion, we’ve reached out to our team of accomplished women in Tech. Their insights provide guidance and advice for women aspiring to successfully navigate and thrive within the tech industry.

“Pursue what you enjoy! Tech is filled with lots of resources for anyone to get involved and there are a few that are specifically for women in tech.”

“The advice I would give to a woman aspiring to enter the tech field is that being a woman should never be a barrier to entry, no matter how loudly someone is yelling to the contrary, and that they belong in tech.”

“Your perspective as a woman offers valuable insights that can enrich any endeavor. Don’t hesitate to share your unique viewpoint at the table!”

“To other women who are aspiring to pursue a career in the tech industry, believe in yourself first and gain confidence through communication with others. We can do anything!”

Uplifting Women in Tech – PLUS QA’s Mission

Part of PLUS QA’s mission is the commitment to foster inclusivity within the tech industry, specifically creating a welcoming space for women. It is a continuous exploration for inventive ways to amplify inclusion and uplift women in technology, and by actively fostering an environment that champions for diversity, equality, and inclusion, we can play a part in a transformative industry where the inclusion of women isn’t just a goal but a reality for the field of technology.
