Tomorrow is International Women’s Day and the 2016 Campaign Theme is Pledge for Parity.
“Worldwide, women continue to contribute to social, economic, cultural and political achievement, and while there is much to celebrate, progress towards gender parity has slowed in many places”.
Let’s all do our part to take concrete steps to help achieve gender parity more quickly – whether by
- helping women and girls achieve their ambitions,
- calling for gender-balanced leadership,
- respecting and valuing difference,
- developing more inclusive and flexible cultures, and
- rooting 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.
Please share through your social networks, using #pledgeforparity and #IWD2016
