International Women's Day 8th March

Last updated by Stephanie.Rosser@essex.gov.uk on Tuesday, March 7, 2023

Wednesday 8 March is International Women’s Day (IWD) 2023, a global awareness day to celebrate women’s achievement, raise awareness about discrimination and take action to drive gender parity.

 

The aim of the IWD 2023 #EmbraceEquity campaign theme is to get the world talking about why "equal opportunities are no longer enough" - and can in fact be exclusionary, rather than inclusive. People start from different places, so true inclusion and belonging require equitable action.
