Today is International Women’s Day, with events going on all over the world with the aim of forging a better, more inclusive, gender equal, working world.
Everyone, regardless of gender, can play a part in helping to create a more gender-inclusive world. We can all challenge stereotypes and prevent women from being overlooked and excluded at work. The World Economic Forum predicts the gender gap won’t close entirely until 2186. This is too long to wait. So around the world, International Women’s Day provides an important opportunity for ground breaking action that can truly drive greater change for women.
The day is also about preventing violence and discrimination against women, and about improving opportunities for women’s education and celebrating their achievements.
