International Women's Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality. International Women's Day (IWD) has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people.
This year’s theme is #ChooseToChallenge. Every day, we are responsible for our own decisions, thoughts, and actions. We can choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequity, we can choose to celebrate women’s achievements, and we can choose to make the world a more inclusive place. Read some advice and perspective from the Boston Private community, or visit the International Women's Day website to learn more.
Also, IWD is hosting their 11th Annual AWD Forum: Business Powering a New Tomorrow on March 5th, 2021. This event will highlight how we can narrow gender gaps in every aspect of society, redefine leadership for women, reconstruct workplaces, and challenge gender bias and inequity for women and girls.
