Women’s History Month

“Every year, March is designated Women’s History Month by presidential proclamation. The month is set aside to honor women’s contributions in American history… Women’s History Month began as a local celebration in Santa Rosa, California. The Education Task Force of the Sonoma County (California) Commission on the Status of Women planned and executed a “Women’s History Week” celebration in 1978. The organizers selected the week of March 8 to correspond with International Women’s Day. The movement spread across the country as other communities initiated their own Women’s History Week celebrations the following year.” – National Women’s History Museum 

In honor of Women’s History Month…

To celebrate Women’s History Month, WorkJam is highlighting women who make a difference within our community — executives, developers, designers, customer success team members, etc.

Throughout March, we will continue to update this blog post to reflect the women highlighted in our weekly internal newsletter.

Taylor Light:

What advice would you give to a young woman entering the workforce?

To young women entering the workforce, I would say be nothing but confident even if you might not always feel it inside. Have so much confidence and always remember what you deserve. Never be afraid to advocate for yourself and be the very best that you can be!

Taylor Light:

What advice would you give to a young woman entering the workforce?

Not to be afraid of mistakes and failures.

Louise Clements:

What advice would you give to a young woman entering the workforce?

Firstly, there will always be people judging you, don’t let them stop you. I strongly believe in capabilities and less of genders. Moreover, I’d love to see more young women run huge companies

WorkJam’s Impact

In 2019, WorkJam conducted primary research on the economic impact of missing a single shift. While missing one work shift hurts hourly employees similarly across industries, single mothers are hit the hardest.

Our research exposed that as the primary provider and caretaker for their families, single mothers struggle to make ends meet if they have to miss just one of their work shifts. For these women, a reliable schedule means a predictable income — and a guarantee that they can afford to keep their family clothed, fed, and cared for. After missing a single shift or having one shift taken away, nearly seven out of 10 (67 percent) single mothers reported having to make late payments on their utilities and other necessities while 47 percent said they would have to skip groceries for the week and another 42 percent would be unable to make rent payments on time.

A consistent work schedule — and access to flexible schedule management — can empower hourly employees to control their economic well-being. By simplifying the front-end distribution and management of schedules and unexpected shift changes, WorkJam help managers improve staffing while aligning work shifts to the needs of their employees.
