Today Marks the International Women’s Day of 2019

Cornell Roofing & Sheet Metal is celebrating the 2019 International Women’s Day (IWD), by supporting this year’s theme; “Balance for Better.” According to the day’s official website, the holiday is “a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.” The first unofficial celebration of the day was in 1911. Beginning in 1913, the IWD has been celebrated each year on March 8th.

A Global Perspective

From its very beginnings in Copenhagen, the IWD has been, and is, a truly global event. The United Nations celebrated the IWD for the first time in 1975. The women’s movement has changed over the long history of the IWD. The globalization of media access, possibly best highlighted by the rapid growth and expansion of social media, has helped heighten the awareness of women’s issues.

A 21st Century Focus

Recognizing much has changed, both here at home and around the globe, the IWD is committed to celebrating more than a day marking the accomplishments of women. That realization is reflected in today’s focus on gender parity, an issue that impacts people in all countries regardless of gender. This focus will remain as one of the IWD’s top priorities moving forward.

All of us at Cornell wish women both here in the Greater Kansas City area and around the globe, a wonderful and prosperous day, not just on March 8th, but throughout the year.  In more and more fields including both the public and private sectors, women are taking on leadership roles, breaking through barriers and working side-by-side with their male counterparts to get the job done.

There you will find additional links. From watching inspirational videos to lists and videos of women who have made a difference in many areas, the IWD urges us all to think globally but act locally on the issue of gender parity.

Cornell Roofing & Sheet Metal

Cornell Roofing and Sheet metal has been covering commercial buildings and institutions in Kansas City with what many of our customers describe as “the best looking roofs” in the industry. For Cornell it all starts with quality. Quality name brand roofing products, quality installation and quality service. Cornell Roofing and Sheet Metal is 100% female owned – the only commercial roofing company in Kansas City with that distinction. Some say being women-owned makes us “pickier” than others. We see that as a compliment. Our whole team – managers and crews alike – take much pride in our high standards. We all work hard to be the best in the business. Another important company value, Work Ethic, has been number one with Cornell since the beginning. Once a Cornell crew starts a project, the same crew completes it. And when not on the job site, our crews spend countless hours behind the scenes in training and development, becoming certified with the best products and installation techniques in the industry
