International Women’s Day has been observed on March 8 since the early 1900's – which was a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies. International Women's Day is a collective day of global celebration and a call for gender parity.
Caterpillar believes that regardless of gender, the full value of each individual's contribution can be realized only when we treat one another with respect, trust and dignity. Addressing gender parity is the first step in a broader, more intentional diversity and inclusion journey. Because ultimately, Caterpillar believes that when employees with different opinions, experiences and backgrounds come together, innovation is born.
