International Women’s Day (IWD), celebrated on 8th March, is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.
IWD imagines a gender equal world, free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination, where difference is valued and celebrated.
This year’s theme is #EmbraceEquity. Equity isn’t just a nice-to-have, it’s a must-have. Equal opportunities aren’t enough - people start from different places, so true inclusion and belonging require equitable action. Equity recognises that each person has different circumstances, and allocates the resources and opportunities needed to reach an equal outcome. Find out more.
