International Women’s Day (IWD) is a global holiday celebrated annually as a focal point in the women’s rights movement, bringing attention to issues such as gender equality, reproductive rights, and violence and abuse against women.
Imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. A world that’s diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women’s equality. This year, the theme for IWD is #EmbraceEquity – something we strive for here at Evolve. There is a stark difference between Equity and Equality. Equality means each individual or group of people is given the same resources or opportunities. Equity recognizes that each person has different circumstances and allocates the exact resources and opportunities needed to reach an equal outcome.
Today is all about celebrating women’s achievement & raising awareness about discrimination.
IWD belongs to everyone, everywhere.
