International Women’s Day is on Tuesday 8 March 2015.
Worldwide, women continue to contribute to social, economic, cultural and political achievement. There is much to celebrate but progress towards gender parity has slowed in many places.
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.
Globally, with individuals pledging to move from talk to purposeful action – and with men and women joining forces, we can collectively help women advance equal to their numbers and realize the limitless potential they offer economies the world over.
