MaxWomen: International Women’s Day

Home Icon

International Women’s Day recognises and celebrates the achievements of women across the world. 

In 2021, we launched our employee-led networking group, MaxWomen, to empower our female colleagues to succeed. At Maximus, 69% of our colleagues are women so supporting and fostering their development, ensuring a fair and equal workplace for all, is a key aim of the network.  

Penny Arnold, MaxWomen Chair and UK Business Support Director, said: 

“With more than 500 members, MaxWomen has quickly established itself as an invaluable resource for female colleagues throughout the company. We have shared resources concerning women’s safety and worked to raise awareness around issues of violence towards women. On the topic of women’s health, we have published resources and links to support women and men in understanding the experience of menopause. 

“Our vision is to create a workplace where women thrive – and to help achieve this we have established three priority areas: women’s health, leadership and development, and women’s safety. Our network offers a safe space to discuss these important issues, identify good practice and drive policy change.  

“In 2022, we continue to focus breaking down barriers to change, challenging stereotypes and bias, and helping improve the workplace for all colleagues through improved education, awareness and tangible change.”
