International Women's Day Celebration
There is no day on the calendar more important to the men of Vietnam than March 8th, International Woman's Day (IWD). If you forget an anniversary or your wife birthday there is sure to be penance to pay, but forget March 8th and you may as well pack your bags son. There is no day on the calendar more important to the men of Vietnam than March 8th, International Woman's Day (IWD). If you forget an anniversary or your wife birthday there is sure to be penance to pay, but forget March 8th and you may as well pack your bags son.
IWD began over a hundred years ago with the first International Woman Conference in Denmark and since that first conference women's equality has advanced tremendously. Another result of the conference was the institution of International Women's Day which has grown into a truly global event that now involves millions of women all around the world.
To make sure we had the day well covered at Doosan Vina we organized an event that would unmistakably assure the women that we appreciated all they do.
The event began at 09:15 with three buses heading out to the five shops to pick up our 230 female employees spread over the 110 hectare complex. Once transported back to the Main Office where the event was held, the ladies arrived to an honor guard of their male colleagues who applauded their arrival.
The Master of Ceremony welcomed the ladies and Mr. Hang Ha Ryu, General Director delivered the official greetings and thanked the ladies for their contributions to Doosan Vina. Ryu said, "For thousands of years, the women of Vietnam have played an essential role in the nation's history and are noted for their hard work, intelligence and creativity."
Next, on the program was the silver throated baritones of the Music Club who took center stage and soon had the ladies swaying, swooning and looking wistfully at the talented young men crooning away up front.
Following the entertainment, the ladies had a chance to win some cash and prizes by playing a popular TV Game Show called The Secret Door. Vietnamese women are known to drive a hard bargain and in a matter of minutes the contestants had snatched up all the prizes, cleaned out the host's pockets and left him pulling his hair.
To wrap-up the event the BOM served the specially baked 22 kilogram cake and as each lady left to return to work they received a gift and a rose to once again say thanks for all they do to make Doosan Vina the best place to work in Vietnam.
