“Worldwide, women continue to contribute to social, economic, cultural and political achievement, and while there is┬ámuch 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
