Sagicor honours women for International Women’s Day

March 09, 2022

Insurance and financial services entity Sagicor joined the rest of the globe in acknowledging International Women’s Day on Tuesday, March 8. The regional company’s outreach was two-fold and saw Sagicor team members recognising females in professions not ordinarily celebrated but whose work was making a difference, as well as showing appreciation to female staff attached to its adopted schools. 

Under the theme “She’s Royal,” female clients and members of the community, were treated to gift baskets filled with items for self-care. These included custodians, occupational nurses, shopkeepers, policewomen, preschool teachers, and data entry clerks. Additionally, at the Mundo Nuevo RC Primary School, female teachers and other ancillary staff were honoured with special gift baskets as part of the company’s give back to its adopted schools.

Sagicor’s Vice President, Group Marketing, Communications and Brand Experience, Ingrid Card said the company was pleased to be able to celebrate the achievements of females on the special day.

“International Women’s Day is about celebrating the achievements of women and lifting them up. This year, we wanted to acknowledge those females who work tirelessly among us in non-traditional roles but whose work and contribution is so necessary. We wanted to extend a huge thank you to them, letting them know that we see them and acknowledge their invaluable contributions.”
