International Women’s Day means different things to different people. For some it’s a celebration, for others it’s a call-to-action to accelerate gender parity, and for many it’s an opportunity to align and promote relevant activity. International Women’s Day is the perfect moment for gender-focused action.

This year’s theme is: Balance for Better. Balance is not a women’s issue, it’s a business issue. The race is on for the gender-balanced boardroom, a gender-balanced government, gender-balanced media coverage, a gender-balance of employees, more gender-balance in wealth, gender-balanced sports coverage, etc. Gender balance is essential for economies and communities to thrive. We encourage you to make International Women’s Day YOUR day - and do what you can to truly make a positive difference for women everywhere.
