International Women’s Day 2021 – Choose to Challenge
International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.
Marked annually on March 8th, International Women's Day (IWD) is one of the most important days of the year to:
- celebrate women's achievements
- raise awareness about women's equality
- lobby for accelerated gender parity
This year the theme is “choose to challenge”
A challenged world is an alert world. Individually, we're all responsible for our own thoughts and actions - all day, every day.
We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women's achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.
From challenge comes change, so let's all choose to challenge.
We are holding a panel session with a lineup of great women to share their “choose to challenge” moment.
Join us to hear their stories – to grow, learn and connect.
