Today is International Women’s Day 2017, a day to recognize women’s achievements and acknowledge the challenges they continue to face in the quest for gender equality. The World Economic Forum predicts that the gender gap won’t close entirely until 2186! 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 theme for 2017 is #BeBoldForChange, calling on the masses to help forge a better working world – a more inclusive, gender equal world. As a female entrepreneur and as the mother of two teenage girls, IWD is dear to my heart. I will be submitting my #BeBoldForChange action on the IWD website. Which bold action will you declare:
- I’ll challenge bias and inequality
- I’ll campaign against violence
- I’ll forge women’s advancement
- I’ll celebrate women’s achievement
- I’ll champion women’s education
You can also partake in events that are being held worldwide. Search for events wherever you live on the IWD site.
This year, will you #BeBoldForChange ?
