Continued proud to champion women in the workplace

By Asher Primrose, HR Director 

International Women's Day, recognized on March 8 each year, is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity and encourages us to reflect on where we’ve been and where we wish to go in the quest for gender equality in the workplace. 

At Continued, we're proud to say our team includes remarkable women at every level of our organization. Our team comprises 73% women, with women making up 74% of our managers and 64% of our executive leadership team.

During my 15+ years with the company, I've also had two children. From day one, I have been given flexibility and work–life balance to be present for my kids.” — Wendy Bradbury, VP of Sales - Career & Educational Services

AudiologyOnline editor Christy HuynhWe place a high priority on maintaining an inclusive workplace, where everyone feels empowered and supported in their careers.

Great Place to Work® and Fortune recognized us for these efforts, naming Continued as one of the Best Workplaces for Women.  

One of the ways we ensure an inclusive workplace is by having a culture that places an emphasis on gender equality. 

As I talk with other women in the company, I often hear stories of previous workplace environments that weren’t intentional with inclusion or supportive of them at various stages in life.  

continued COO Stacy Williams“We support and encourage our team members to seek advanced degrees, specialty certifications, and advanced learning opportunities. We’ve had many women advance within their profession while working at Continued, and we’ve cheered on their success every step of the journey.” — Stacy Williams, CEO 

At Continued, women always have a seat at the table, and I consistently hear women in our company say they feel included in decisions and supported both professionally and personally.

We have many women leaders who serve on influential boards within the professions Continued serves, and we give them time off from work and financial backing to support their efforts and the impact they make by serving in this way.

We also place high emphasis on work–life balance, which is meaningful across our team. 

Our 100% virtual workplace reflects the values of our company founders, whose desire to tightly weave their personal and professional aspirations has allowed their employees to do the same as well. As a result, our team members have the ability to excel professionally without sacrificing time with family or other interests outside of work. 

At Continued, we know that an inclusive workforce helps ensure a diversity of viewpoints and workstyles. I am grateful to be part of a company filled with strong, influential, and exceptional women.
