Klick
was today included on the Best
Workplaces™ for Women
list for the fourth straight year as it wraps
up its month-long support of International Women’s Day. Global workplace
culture authority Great Place to Work® announced Klick among the select
list of female-friendly companies earlier today, following independent
analysis of employee surveys, as well as programs and practices that
promote the fair treatment and advancement of women in the workplace.

“We are very proud to again be recognized as a Best Workplace for Women
and do our part to both support and advance diversity, inclusion, and
equality in the workplace,” said Klick President Lori Grant, a past
recipient of Women’s Executive Network’s (WXN) Top 100 Most Powerful
Women and MM&M magazine’s Hall of Femme awards. “We also
salute the contributions that women have brought and continue to bring
to work, which is why we celebrate International Women’s Day for a month
every year.”

Klick has held a variety of internal initiatives and events throughout
the month of March to support International Women’s Day, including:

  • a private screening of Captain Marvel, Marvel Studio’s first
    woman-led superhero movie;
  • an interactive Lunch & Learn workshop on body positivity, talking
    about self-care and body pride with award-winning author Catherine
    Hernandez;
  • speed mentoring sessions led by the company’s female senior leaders;
    and
  • the creation of a limited-edition 2019 International Women’s Day
    postcard-and-laptop sticker collection, specially designed by its
    in-house creative thinkers and designers.

Klicksters also paid tribute to specific women who have personally
inspired them by contributing #ShesMyHERo stories to the company’s
intranet. Among Klicksters’ posts:

  • ‘My mother had to raise us alone and things were rough, but even
    when we got evicted, she still made sure to find the money to send to
    our sponsored child every month. I think she wanted us to understand
    that even when it seems like you’re at rock bottom, there’s always
    somebody who needs you.’
  • ‘I want to recognize a woman who has tirelessly fought for the
    protection of civil liberties and the marginalized. “I don’t say
    women’s rights – I say the constitutional principle of the equal
    citizenship stature of men and women.” – Ruth Bader Ginsburg.’
  • ‘Born in the Philippines, my mom loved music and taught at local
    schools and sang at church/events. She was happy. In 1974 guerillas
    machine-gunned the Jeep her husband and father were in, leaving my dad
    with a bullet in his buttock. She decided to travel far to find a
    safer life for us.’

Helping women in need
In keeping with its tradition of
helping those in need, Klicksters have also been participating in
Klick’s 4th Annual #ShoeboxChallenge in support of local
women’s shelters through the Shoebox
Project
. Teams have been filling each shoebox with $50 worth of
items that women enjoy but may not splurge on for themselves in
difficult times. Klick is also donating the proceeds from its Klick Jam
2019 charity basketball tournament at the Mattamy Athletic Centre
tonight to the Shoebox Project.

Klick conducts regular pay fairness reviews to ensure that women and men
are paid equitably for their roles and contributions to the company’s
success. It offers maternity leave top-ups, flexible childcare options,
complimentary on-site fitness and wellness programs, diversity and
inclusion programming, mentoring for parents and caregivers, and access
to work/life balance counseling services among its standard benefits.
