International Women's Day is celebrated on March 8 around the world to bring attention to the historical, cultural, and political achievements of women. This year's theme is to #BreaktheBias with "gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow."

For many women in technology, this often means working in a male-dominated industry. This common factor was a catalyst for a group of women at Clearsense who wanted a support system to elevate one another's success in their careers and beyond. Together they founded our Women's Council to identify, develop, encourage, advance, link, and support the women at Clearsense.

"The mission of the Clearsense Women's Council is to develop systemic approaches to support and advance women at Clearsense. We are committed to promoting an inclusive culture where women thrive," said founding member and co-chair, Kaley Volkmann.

The Clearsense Women's Council is built on five pillars for its collective goals:

ENGAGE: Attract female talent
Cultivate the women at Clearsense
Support women in progressing in their careers
Provide professional development opportunities
Promote strength and confidence

The Clearsense Women's Council hosts monthly webinars featuring guest speakers for a "Superwomen Series," including topics like health and wellness, career advice, and overcoming obstacles. They also sponsor a mentorship program, book club, volunteer opportunities, and virtual runs open to all women at Clearsense.

"It has been difficult since the pandemic to build the relationships we once had in a traditional office setting" said founding member and co-chair, Nyoka Seymore. "At the core of our Women's Council is to cultivate those relationships and build a network for the women in this healthcare data space. We strive to meet our women where they are, know what they're interested in, and give them resources for personal and professional growth."

Clearsense is working to break the bias in the workplace, offering a company culture that celebrates diversity, inclusion, and our differences. If you're interested in joining our team, we invite you to connect with us.
