UN Women's Empowerment.
Altitude Assist is a female owned and operated company and we are proud to have signed the UN Women’s Empowerment Principals, Global Compact.
Companies around the globe are promoting gender equality and women’s full participation and leadership in the workplace, marketplace and community. UN Women and UN Global Compact are encouraging firms of all sizes, in all countries, industries and sectors, to take decisive action towards gender equality with the Women’s Empowerment Principles.
By signing the Women’s Empowerment Principles, companies galvanize their shareholders and stakeholders to drive change for gender equality. They are becoming role models for attracting talent, entering new markets, serving their communities, while measurably improving the bottom line. Working towards gender parity at all levels of a company is a great first step. But corporate cultures need to be transformed to put gender equality, diversity and inclusion into practice.
