Equity and gender equality: 3 women who work at ServiceNow

Every year on March 8, we take a global pause to focus our attention on International Women’s Day, an observance that began in 1910 as a way to promote gender equality. At ServiceNow, one day is not enough to devote to this. We make a habit of promoting and accelerating equity and gender equality year-round.

The official International Women’s Day 2023 theme is “Embrace Equity.” The United Nations has expanded on that theme with its own: “DigitALL: Innovation and technology for gender equality.” We couldn't be more excited to champion both of these, as they speak to our continued dedication to equity within and beyond our company.

ServiceNow employees explore these themes by sharing their stories about meaningful artifacts, as they did with our celebration of Black History Month. Watch the video to see how three women at ServiceNow embrace equity in tech and their everyday lives:

Standing out

Jennifer M., director of partner acceleration and go-to-market execution, and global co-chair of the Women at ServiceNow Belonging Group, shares a letter her family received upon the death of her father, who had encouraged her to follow her passion.

“He was a big part of my success in technology,” she says. When she was in high school in the South, “there were not a lot of dads who were really encouraging their daughters to go to college and take computer science and math,” she explains.

“When I was at university, I quickly realized that oftentimes, I was the only woman in the room, especially in cybersecurity,” adds Aneesha S., senior technical consultant for security operations. “I felt like I needed a community of other women to talk to and discuss my work with,” she says.

So, Aneesha organized a conference for women in tech, centered on inclusivity, diversity, and intersectionality. She displays her conference-chair T-shirt as a memento of that empowering event. It motivates her to follow her passions and be true to herself.

Demonstrating strength

Shelly M., employee experience solution sales manager, holds a beautiful jade necklace given to her by the Māori queen of New Zealand, Te Arikinui. “It's a reminder to me to be strong and to be proud of who I am, not only as a woman, but as a Māori woman,” she explains. “Sometimes if I’m going into meetings, especially with very senior people, I’ll wear it.”

At ServiceNow, we’re proud to be making a difference by supporting women leaders through robust programs such as the Power of 10, which gives women the opportunity to build support and community through cross-functional peer mentoring groups. We also partner with nonprofit organizations such as Girls Who Code and Black Sisters in STEM.

ServiceNow proactively manages pay equity and strives to make work and life integrate in ways that work best for each employee. Commitments like these led to our recognition as one of the Fortune 100 Best Workplaces for Women.
