Celebrating International Women’s Day

Today, we recognize International Women’s Day (IWD), a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. IWD also marks a call to action for accelerating gender equity. Around the globe, women and allies will come together to celebrate women's accomplishments and march for women's equity.

This year’s IWD theme is #EmbraceEquity. Do you know the difference between equity and equality? These terms are often used interchangeably, but they are inherently different concepts. Check out this resource to learn more. We can all do our part to drive change by challenging barriers to access, calling out assumptions and stereotypes, drawing attention to bias in decision-making and seeking out inclusion. No act is too small.

As the nation’s leading provider of highly specialized health care for women, babies and children, females play a vital role at Pediatrix®. Our workforce comprises 80% female associates, and 57% of our affiliated physicians are women. Among the executive and senior executive level and manager group, more than 66% are female. We greatly value the unique contributions women clinicians bring to the bedside as well as those in supportive non-clinical roles who help us fulfill our mission to Take great care of the patient, every day and in every way.

Please enjoy this highlight of some of our dedicated and talented female associates who are blazing trails in their fields and leading the way for those that will come behind them. We celebrate you!
