Southlake-based travel technology solutions provider Sabre celebrated International Women’s day March 8 by hosting a number of events at its headquarters.
International Women’s Day was established to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women. This year’s theme was #BeBoldForChange, urging people to make the world more gender inclusive, with the goal of spreading the awareness of gender parity.
The company welcomed employees with red T-shirts and a leadership breakfast, a discussion about Sheryl Sandberg’s book, Lean In, about gender differences and advice to help women achieve their goals, partnering employees with accountability partners and participating in follow-up activities.
WOMEN’S DAY ACKNOWLEDGES ACHIEVEMENTS
Sabre Women’s Exchange, an employee organization focused on networking, education, and career opportunities for women, sponsored and took 200 headshots of employees to update their career profiles.
Lunch was hosted by Rachel Gonzalez, Sabre’s executive vice president and general counsel, and Patti Johnson, CEO of People Results and author of Make Waves: Be the One to Start Change at Work and in Life, followed by a happy hour and book signing.
During lunch, awareness was raised about Sabre’s Passport to Freedom Program, an initiative launched in 2012 to unite the travel and tourism industry to fight child sex trafficking and human slavery. A donation of $5,000 was given to Mosaic Family Services, a nonprofit community based organization that provides services to refugees and immigrants in crisis.
