Today is International Women’s Day (IWD)/ IWD is a global event that celebrates women’s achievements, from the political to the social to the cultural, while reminding us all of the work to be done to arrive at gender equality. The theme for this year’s celebration is a “Pledge for Parity.” The International Women’s Day official website encourages us to celebrate today by Pledging for Parity:
Everyone – men and women – can pledge to take a concrete step to help achieve gender parity more quickly – whether to help women and girls achieve their ambitions, call for gender-balanced leadership, respect and value difference, develop more inclusive and flexible cultures or root out workplace bias. Each of us can be a leader within our own spheres of influence and commit to take pragmatic action to accelerate gender parity.
Google has also dedicated today’s Google Doodle to IWD. Check out the the video below:
