Outsource Access Celebrates Women’s Month

“Each time a woman stands up for herself, without knowing it possibly, without claiming it, she stands up for all women.” Maya Angelou

This Woman’s Month, Outsource Access strengthens its promise and commitment to advocate for women everywhere. We are proud to join the global community in celebrating the legacy of women by highlighting the importance of gender equality and women’s empowerment.

A staggering 70% of our team are women and we wouldn’t be where we are now if not for their strength, dedication and commitment. 


About Women’s Month

Women’s Month is rooted in the early 20th century’s women’s rights movements. Originally held  in just a day every March 8th, the celebration eventually expanded into a month-long commemoration of the progress made in advancing women’s rights while acknowledging the ongoing challenges and barriers that women continue to face.


How We Support Women

Outsource Access, recognizes year long all kinds of women leaders – from those juggling mom duties and work, those rocking cool side hobbies, to those dominating their career growth, women leaders have helped shape the direction of our company and drive growth and success. 

Outsource Access is committed to advancing gender equality through various initiatives, including mentorship programs, leadership development workshops, and diversity training. By fostering a culture of inclusivity and respect, we aim to break down barriers and create a more equitable and supportive work environment for women.

A recent report from the Hamilton Project at the Brookings Institution shows a spike in the number of women with children under five years of age in the workforce. Their participation rate reached a whopping 70.4% compared to 68.9% before the pandemic. A separate US survey of over 1,000 working moms also found that 79% of them prefer remote work because of its benefits such as access to empathetic employers, flexible hours, and the bonus of getting to spend time with their children. 


Meet our Women Leaders 

Outsource Access definitely does not want to miss out from the talent and skills women offer. Due to this, they are proud to be led by strong female senior leaders in the company.  “Being a woman never held me back, but instead pushed me to do greater things,” Ms. Jaycel Demonguitan, Outsource Access Chief Operating Officer, shared when asked about how it was to be a woman leader.  “In fact, I’ve found that the unique perspective and approach women bring to leadership can be a tremendous asset.  For example, I’ve always focused on fostering collaboration and building strong relationships within my teams. This has led to a more engaged and supportive work environment, which ultimately benefits everyone.”

“It is undeniable that women are tasked to respond to a duality of roles. In my case, it is my desire to be there for my family and be an integral part of an international community that builds meaningful careers. For us women who are unwilling to compromise, being in such a workplace that provides the choice to be fully remote, hybrid or on-site, spells the world of difference,”  Ms. Justine Marie Santos-Sugay, Chief Marketing Officer, shares in the same interview. “For women who don’t have a choice but to be both- companies like Outsource Access are a lifeline. Providing this choice is one example of leveling the playing field and allowing women to live rich, uncompromised lives.”

“We aim to create more than a safe space for women here at Outsource Access. In fact, we want women to thrive – that’s why we have gender positive policies and initiatives. This means we go beyond just ensuring a workplace free from harassment and discrimination.” Ms. Mary Castro, Head of People and Culture, also shares. “We have programs in place to  support women’s career development. We also offer flexible work arrangements that recognize the diverse needs of working families.”

“Seeing women thrive here at Outsource Access, really makes me proud as a senior leader here,” Ms. Cynthia Maslian, Chief Talent Officer, also shares. “I  especially look forward to seeing more empowered women here at OA – in and out of the office. This means not just excelling in their roles, but feeling confident to take on challenges,  voice their ideas openly, and  know they have the support to pursue their career goals. I  envision a future where women at OA feel comfortable reaching for leadership positions,  becoming mentors to others, and ultimately shaping the company’s success.

Here at Outsource Access, we are proud to stand with women around the world in their pursuit of equality, opportunity, and success. As to the question of what makes a woman leader, the question is quite simple, she can be your mother, your sister, your friend, and she can be you! A woman leader is whoever she wants to be.
