Tribute to International Women's Day

    Take a look at the faces above: these are many of the 140 women working for LM Wind Power in Suape, Brazil. Maria Aparecida Aureliano da Rocha, HR Specialist, created the collage as a tribute to International Women’s Day on March 8, to celebrate the many contributions of these women throughout the year.

    There are many different ways to honor International Women’s Day — our colleagues around the world are proof of that. Here are some of their inspiring initiatives.

    Bangalore, India
    The women at Technology Center India (TCI) believe “Empowering Women is Empowering Humanity". To put this in action, they decided to celebrate International Women’s Day by making a difference. The women visited Rainbow Home in Bengaluru city, a home for more than 70 girls, 5-16 years old. These children are either orphans or come from an underprivileged background, so the home provides shelter, food and all their basic necessities. Throughout the day, women from TCI conducted programs to inspire the girls to aim high in life and also create awareness about personal health and hygiene. They voluntarily donated stationary, toiletries and essential daily use products, and they led indoor games and songs to entertain the children.

Dressed in traditional attire, each woman was individually greeted with a bouquet of roses.  Activities then continued throughout the day — a chocolate cake in their honor, lunch together in the canteen, musical chairs and other activities. In an open forum, many colleagues shared their thoughts about the significance of International Women’s Day, recognizing the sincerity and hard work of our female colleagues.
