International Women's Day 2021

We can choose to challenge to create a more inclusive, equal world. #ChooseToChallenge #IWD2021
The first celebration of International Women’s Day took place on March 19, 1911, in several European countries. Today, it is observed by countries, businesses, and organizations around the globe during Women’s History Month.

This year, we are proud to continue our annual participation with (virtual) events planned. Together, we can create a more inclusive and just world.

International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. Significant activity is witnessed worldwide as groups come together to celebrate women's achievements or rally for women's equality.

Building awareness

At Ricoh, we stand with women everywhere, every day, in a call to action for women’s equality. Since 2016, we have celebrated that call with women around the world on March 8. We know that to accelerate gender equality, we must build an awareness in our communities and the world that celebrates women’s achievements and strives to be inclusive.

Committed to diversity

Ricoh CEO Jake Yamashita has stated:

“We have to embrace diversity and inclusion to find the best solutions for the future.”

The women of Ricoh contribute to its success every day. And we recognize that the more inclusive and diverse our workforce, greater are the successes that the company and each employee achieve. Truly, a commitment to diversity, inclusiveness, and equality is key to finding the best solutions for the future.
