Balance for Better – A Gender-Balanced World is a Better World

International Women Day

Women are courageous for they fight gender roles and stand tall, shoulder to shoulder with men, in all fields of life. From politics to aviation, from on-field engineers to corporate leaders, women have amazed everyone with their brilliance, intellect, and bravery. Unfortunately, women had to fight a fierce battle to prove their abilities to the world.

Women are the largest untapped reservoir of talent in the world – Hillary Clinton

Women are the largest untapped reservoir of talent, for they are far more capable and radiant than we have yet discovered. They have the superpowers to balance their professional and personal lives, beautifully, and that is what we are cherishing on this Women’s Day.

For decades, men have ruled the professional world. They were considered responsible for earning bread and butter, thus, enjoyed more opportunities. But times are changing, and women are here, in every profession, every role, and every character, doing as good as men are. We no longer define gender roles; we let women choose their paths.

History has witnessed some extraordinary women, inspiring us with their excellence. Be it Marie Sklodowska Curie who invented radioactivity or Margaret Thatcher, the first female Prime Minister of Britain. Be it Wangari Maathai, the first woman in East and Central Africa to have a doctorate or Isabella Bird who defied gender roles and became the first women fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. Be it Mary Barra, the CEO of General Motors or Ginni Rometty, the CEO of IBM. These women have taught us to create wonders, even in the roughest storms.

And this is the legacy we are taking forward at Cubix because we believe in BalanceforBetter. A successful company requires the creativity, wisdom, and intellect that women bring to the table. We believe that women have a significant role to play in every field and a gender-balanced company best utilizes the talent of every gender. Cornering women do no good, but an inclusive company infinitely benefits from their expertise.

At Cubix, we are committed to recruiting, training, compensating and promoting employees, irrespective of their genders. We open our doors based on the value an employee brings to the company, caring least of their gender. We are prouder of our female employees whose work has outshined their male counterparts’ uncountable times. They are brilliantly managing their personal and professional lives and amaze us every day.

Our female employees are amongst the strongest pillars of the company and the reason for Cubix’s glory. Our Human Resource Manager, Urooj Zehra, has helped foster a productive, creative, and safe work environment for the team and her tireless efforts for Cubix are unrivaled with. Our Senior PHP Developer, Samreen Quyyum, has completed several complex development projects and is always on the front to lead. Our SQA Engineer, Fabiha Hassan, is a true enthusiast who goes above and beyond to deliver the best. Our ambitious Graphic Designer, Shafia Khatri, is an epitome of creativity and professionalism.

On this Women’s Day, we promise ourselves to continue being a company with equal opportunities and a safe work environment for everyone, irrespective of genders, because of #BalanceforBetter!
