Quest, Inc. celebrates the many achievements and valuable input of women throughout our organization and beyond every day. March 8, 2019 is International Women’s Day! Today we highlight two dynamic women who have made significant contributions transforming lives and shaping the future for women around the world.
Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II is the longest-reigning monarch in the history of the British throne, and is a beloved and respected figure across the globe. On February 6, 1952, upon the death of her father, Princess Elizabeth immediately acceded the throne, becoming Queen Elizabeth II. The Queen sees public and voluntary service as one of the most important elements of her work. The Queen has links - as Royal Patron or President with over 600 charities - taking special interest in those that tackle community and civic issues. She even stays on top of ever-changing technology and recently posted her first Instagram post! The Queen carries out all of her duties against the backdrop of a full personal life which has seen her raise four children and welcome grandchildren, and now great-grandchildren, to the Royal Family. The Queen celebrated her 60th year on the thrown, her Diamond Jubilee, in 2015. Her Majesty is currently 92 years young and continues to reign supreme – Now that’s girl power! The Queen has established a culture of tolerance, respect and inclusion among her family and her country. These values are at the heart of the work we do each day at Quest. Quest, Inc. applauds all women who have made a difference to the individuals we serve as well as around the world.
Quest applauds these two tenacious women for their grace and perseverance as they continue to impact the lives of others.
