We’re responsible for our thoughts and actions—all day, every day. And regardless of our gender, we need to acknowledge where we stand in the middle of society. We’ve heard about female astronauts and prime ministers, school girls can go to university, women can work and be a mother for their kids. With that being said, it indicates that equality has brought significant for both men and women, and a certain job no longer perceive gender as a vital part.
What catches us off guard is, rather, how discrimination still occurs. It arises in a less-blatant way through body language, prejudice, and another small behavior which influences one’s emotional state. It’s a little disconcerting, sad even, to see that to create psychological safe environments where everyone feels comfortable getting to know each other, appreciating differences, and learning to give and receive feedback in an open manner, is a thing which requires hard work.
“The unspoken words will lead to misunderstanding and poor team dynamics.”
Around us, there’re such problems that no one tells. Hence, if you find someone underrepresented, encourage them to speak out, build them to be brave and live with it. They may be a genius problem solver, they may be the smartest person in the room, but never share their ideas while a decision is being made.
During this International Women’s Day celebration, we have these Ms. and Mrs. of RRGraph to share about their condition related with day-to-day office duty.
Larasita, Marketing Strategist
In RRGraph I do a one-step-ahead plan for the marketing division. Most of my work requires thinking and planning. As a first woman employee here, I think RRGraph has had equality since the very beginning. Whether you’re a woman or a man, if you have the capability to get the job done, then you’re the one. Until now, I haven’t gotten any bad experience, the guys are fun, and we respect each other.
However, since it’s particularly all-guys place, I’d say that the facility is not so women-friendly. But RRGraph has tried to change it by recruiting more women. Then there’s prayer robe, mirror, separated bedroom, and some kitchen utensils.
RRGraph is very supportive. They drive me to live fully with my passion; illustration. I do book illustrations as a side job and the founders don’t mind at all. What’s more, these people helped me to recover my illustration files that had been lost! I want to continue my study as well, and hopefully the founders support me 100% and give me advice to do financial planning and strategy.
Azzahra, Marketing Manager
I am responsible for compiling any marketing-related work and progress. At some points, I oblige to make videos and create freebies layout too. Those require multitasking skill and durability to go through tight schedules. Yet I am so lucky to work here, where there’s no gap between employees so I can share anything with them with no hesitation.
I am a mommy too. So far, RRGraph always comes up with special treat so I have more time to take care of my little family. For example, they allowed me three-months furlough on pregnancy. What’s more, girls have their own room so they can take a rest when crammed hits during period.
Hmmm, and food is also important. I mean, there’s this guy who sells snacks in the office. It helps a lot when I crave some spicy food. To say the least, I am going to say that I often spill some harsh sayings, yet everybody’s okay with it. They know that I don’t mean it. Sorry guys, mood swings and estrogen are sucks sometimes.
Anin, Product Manager
RRGraph is a cozy place to work. We girls never have any serious problems with the boys. The founders are super kind that they always listen to our opinion, though it’s a little thing and seem a bit unimportant. Every day, they try to treat us better and better, they facilitate us with kitchen utensils, toiletries, cleaning-set, and so on.
RRGraph helps me to achieve my goal, they let me learn about marketplace and design template management by letting me work in this position. So, one thing that I’ve realized is pretty important is making sure I am surrounded by, and that I work for and with, people who are going to support me to success. In a near-future, I want to know how RRGraph, as a business can grow, I want to learn their way in managing financial stuff, and how the founders rise and fall, and be steady again to keep everything in the right way.

Aribah, Customer Support
In my opinion, every employee here is treated proportionally. I feel like the relationship among its employees is rather family-like than just a normal co-works. Here, long days can feel so fast, and every day almost feels like Friday. We care for each other, and the environment does really good to me as a married woman.
Here, there’s no such thing like bullies. The schedule and job-desk totally fit me too. In the morning, I don’t need to wake up very early and as I get home, I still can prepare dinner for my husband. I’ve never been bragged with any weekend task as well, so I may have quality time with my family.
At last, though several things remain unclear because I am still new here, I dare to place a bet that RRGraph will be worth more than I’ve ever thought.
Yuna, Junior Designer
There’s no minority in RRGraph, that’s what I feel. Everyone has the same opportunity and rights to say something. And also, the circumstance is very supportive. We can freely express anything, and we know each others’ boundaries.
Hence, I feel secure working here, nobody annoys me. And most importantly, my peers are quite open, they’re willing to teach and share, which is really good, so I can gain more knowledge than just working like a horse. To me, metaphorically RRGraph is like a cherished sanctuary.
To be honest, it’s my first time doing a 9-5 p.m. kind of job. I don’t know if it’s normal or not but I think, here that I always feel included though I don’t have much experience. Still, I have some problems due to the age differences, I sometimes feel afraid to mingle with the others. In school, I probably am more talky and can laugh at my classmates’ jokes, something I hardly do here in the office. However, it’s okay, I mean, I just need to adjust more.
Anyway, it’s a good opportunity to work here. Because I’ve noticed people are very supportive and always ready to teach me new things. One thing, I hope I can learn more about video-editing in RRGraph!
I am so happy with my job because I can get inspiration, experience, and friends in one package. Overall, I have no problems with the guys. But I hope you guys can gain more togetherness with praying together. Play hard, pray hard, right? Hehe.
Miaaow… I love sleeping. That’s what I am doing. Miaaow… And I love staying with these hoomans. They give me food, I mean, delicious and expensive food. Miaaow.. They still do good to me although I am not being good to them. It’s weird. Hoomans are weird creatures. But at least they’re good to me. Miaoow… They feed me delicious and expensive food. I like it when they mix the food with a bit of water. It makes the food wet and yummy, I mean, very yummy. I don’t really like food that’s too dry. Miaaow… I don’t want to get disturbed when I sleep, except you want some scars on your skin. I love sleeping on the CPU or on someone’s bag, because the ceramics floor feels cold, I hope my hoomans will give me a room-heater or something like that. Miaaow… I love something warm.
To say the least… we’ll give you this International Women’s Day presentation template for free! Get it right away and spread the bandwagon!
