About this Event

International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the cultural, economic, political and social achievements of women. This year’s theme is #ChooseToChallenge

This International Women’s Day (IWD), we invite you to participate in our online live global celebration on Monday 8th March 2021 from 8:00pm – 9:00pm. The event will enlighten and empower women and girls worldwide to choose to challenge stereotypes and oppose bias to help create the change we want to shape a fairer future in a more inclusive and gender equal world.

As women we can be stronger and more powerful when we work together. Our panel of women will talk about what IWD means to them, how we can raise awareness to support the advancement of women and how we can inspire more women to take action and #ChooseToChallenge to make a difference in their community.
