Our times have seen some extraordinary women leaders: Melanie Perkins (to start with a local one), Jacinda Arden, and Kamala Harris – all of whom have made inspiring contributions that have quite literally shaped the world we know now and empowered other women in ways that will shape the future yet to come.
International Women’s Day falls on the 8th of March yearly and is a global day dedicated to the dreams of a biased, stereotype-free world, celebrating the value of diversity and the wins of women. The annual theme for 2023 is #EmbraceEquity, advocating for an equitable world that’s inclusive and celebratory of all.
Companies and global organisations play a big part in paving the way toward breaking the bias and providing opportunities for an inclusive society, and the same goes for being trailblazers in upholding the accomplishments of women. Recognising the achievements of your team members is important to do on any given day, but when it’s International Women’s Day, you know you have to pull out the big cards to honour every woman on the team for the hard work and passion they pour into your company daily. Advocating a day that marks the call for a gender-equal world and women’s rights in every sense (cultural, political, professional), is an important effort to take.
