International Women’s day 2023 focuses on the contributions of innovation and technology towards achieving gender equality. The campaign for this purpose is tagged #EmbraceEquality, which aims to spotlight the importance of building a fair and just society for all women to exist safely in.
Embracing equity reflects on the different discriminatory laws against women all over the world, even in a time where technology is gradually changing the modus operandi of many countries. The campaign for IWD 2023 is not only focused on pandering gender equality topics, it nose dives into making sure that there are equal opportunities accessible for all regardless of their gender.
Navigating equality in the healthcare space in Nigeria cannot be overemphasized. To this end, we are celebrating some women at DRO Health and asking them what equity means and how their roles help to promote Equity while working at DRO Health.
“Equity is giving everyone what they need to be successful. It’s not giving everyone the exact same thing. If we give everyone the exact same thing, expecting that will make everyone equal, it assumes that everyone started out in the same place- and this can be vastly inaccurate because everyone isn’t the same.” – Norris Campbell, Chief Operating Officer.
For Norris, her role as the COO at DRO Health helps her use technology to improve access to healthcare for all users. Through this, she is able to tackle any form of discrimination in healthcare, including mobility, access to specialists and privacy.
“Equity means fairness and putting into consideration our unique differences.” – Adaobi Ogu, Healthcare Service Manager.
For Adaobi, her role as a Healthcare Service Manager affords her the opportunity to deal with specific health needs of women. Through the wellness product on the DRO Health app, women have the opportunity to speak to doctors about their reproductive, physiological, mental issues without any bias and at an affordable rate. Her role also allows her to suggest new features for the wellness program which she believes may be integral to women located anywhere in Nigeria.
“Equity means treating people with fairness no matter their gender, race or the state they are in. It is giving everyone equal treatment no matter what.” – Irene Aruku, Lead Liaison Officer.
For Irene, her role as a Lead Liaison Officer for DRO Health allows her to ensure that proper and unconditional medical care is given to everyone, no matter the time or day.
“Equity means being fair and just to everyone, regardless of your knowledge of them. Without equity, equality is a farce and a wishful ideology; and one cannot exist without another. As humans, we have distinct features and attributes that make us different from the next person. Equity is that conscious effort taken to recognize that irrespective of a person’s race, ethnicity, religion, physical attributes, disability, etc, we should all be treated with fairness at all times.” – Obianuju Okeke, Content Manager.
For Obianuju, she ensures that all types of content including blogs, emails, social media content, reflect the health concerns of all genders including women. In creating content, she is aware of the numerous changes women experience as they go through life, so she makes a conscious effort on educating women about taking charge of their lives through deliberate content ideas.
“Equity is the quality of being fair and impartial. It recognizes that not all fingers are equal and makes adjustments to ensure that the imbalances of life, does not exempt one from opportunities.” – Jennifer Chu, Executive Assistant & Pharmacy Liaison Officer.
Jennifer’s role at DRO Health allows her to interface with new employees during recruitment and onboarding sessions. She ensures that candidates are only employed based on their skills and experience without any form of bias and she also looks for ways to accommodate the needs of employees at DRO Health.
Embracing Equity in the society begins with you. Don’t let it stop at today, continue to ensure that you speak up and speak out for equity and fairness using every means available to you. Happy International Women’s Day!
