Yeditepe is an Example to the World in Working Life

International Women's Day Celebrated at Yeditepe University

A seminar titled "Women Who Know how to Manage their Money" was held at Yeditepe University on March 8 International Women’s Day. The opening speeches made before the seminar emphasized gender equality in Yeditepe University employee ratios.

Speaking at the opening ceremony of the seminar, which was attended by a high number of women, Yeditepe University Founder and Honorary President Bedrettin Dalan emphasized that it was the great leader Mustafa Kemal Atatürk who gave women the right to vote and be voted for for the first time in the world, and this has a profound reflection in the 20th century.

"I gave rights to the ones who deserve it, gender equality happened by itself"

Bedrettin Dalan said "the woman is the foundation of mankind", and continued:

"The Turks have never treated their women as second-class people throughout history. There has never been discrimination between women and men in Turkish culture. We have to put people at the center. In my life as a manager, I have never assigned a quota for women. I gave rights to the ones who deserve it, gender equality happened by itself. Here at our university, the ratio shows it all ... 54 percent female and 46 percent male employees. I have only one thing to say to women: Are not afraid of men as women, be aware that you have the power, and go as far as you can. Decide what want to do in life and realize your dreams."

Yeditepe University Rector Prof. Dr. Canan Aykut Bingöl also stated that in the nature females and males exist together and when life is left to its natural flow then everything will become 50% -50%.

Speaking at the seminar, Secretary General of the Association of Literacy and Accession Dr. Yasemin Demirdağ reminded that Atatürk was the first leader in the world to give women the right to vote and be voted for, and said "Let's treasure this."

CFA member Murat Sağman in his speech "Women Who Know how to manage their Money" suggested that women should "Make a distinction between their needs and their desires in their expenditures".
