Today is International Men's Day (IMD) and, for the first time, we're marking this important date in the wellbeing calendar and continuing our conversation on mental health.
This year's IMD celebrates men who lead by example. And our colleagues around the world have done just that, opening up about their vulnerabilities in the hope that their stories will inspire and encourage others to do the same. November marks a number of significant dates in the calendar for men and their families around the world. This includes Movember to raise awareness of men's health, as well as International Children's Day, which celebrates the relationship between men and their children and the uniqueness of this bond.
IMD has historically focused on wellbeing and mental health, and this is something that is equally high on our list of priorities here at Taylor Wessing. This year, our people have come together to state proudly and boldly:
And that is exactly what they have done in our video.
As partner sponsor for this year's initiative, and on behalf of the Balance in Business network, I wanted to say a huge thank you to Ben Alexander, Matthew Clark, Christopher Drinjak, John Haresnape, Volker Herrmann, Russell Holden, Damon Kemp, Lucas Lambrechtse, James Langley, Laurence Lieberman and Nick Kampschreur who've bravely shared their personal experiences. I hope you find the video as touching, eye-opening and inspiring as I did. It speaks volumes about our culture and community that we have such fantastic advocates who're willing to 'reveal the bigger picture' and share their vulnerabilities to support others.
We've also captured insights from our people sharing stories about the men in their lives who lead by example - sometimes doing so in the face of challenge and adversity.
