The theme for 2021 is #ChooseToChallege: We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world. From challenge comes change, so let’s all choose to challenge.
Please join the International Women's Day Committee for a virtual event that will consist of a panel discussion with a special emphasis on gender equity around the world. Panelists will include Barbara Oehninger from Switzerland, Marta Martinez from Uruguay, Ayesha Patnaik from India, and Chero Chuma from Kenya. They will share what they have learned and discuss both advances and continuing challenges in achieving gender equity in their native countries.
Community members are encouraged to raise your hand high to show you’re in and that you commit to choose to challenge and call out inequality. Take a selfie with your hand raised and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
. We’ll be posting them on the International Women’s Day social media.
