• International Women’s Day – is today. It is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. For IWD 2023, the global campaign theme is Embrace Equity. The campaign aims to encourage important conversations on “Why equal opportunities aren't enough” and “Why equal isn't always fair”. People start from different places, so true inclusion and belonging require equitable action. We can all challenge gender stereotypes, call out discrimination, draw attention to bias, and seek out inclusion. Collective activism is what drives change. From grassroots action to wide-scale momentum, we can all embrace equity. And to truly embrace equity, means to deeply believe, value, and seek out difference as a necessary and positive element of life. To embrace equity means to understand the journey required to achieve women's equality.
