Be Bold for the International Women’s Day
In commemoration of this year’s International Women’s Day (IWD), The KIU Giraffe Times is asking you to be bold for change. We are calling on the masses to help forge a better working relationship and a more gender inclusive world.
Last year, organizations and individuals around the world supported the #PledgeForParity campaign and committed to helping women and girls achieve their ambitions, challenge conscious and unconscious bias, call for gender-balanced leadership, value women and men’s contributions equally, and create inclusive and flexible cultures.
From awareness raising to concrete action, organizations rallied their people to pledge support to help forge gender parity on International Women’s Day and beyond.
The World Economic Forum predicts that the gender gap won’t close entirely until 2186. This is too long to wait. Around the world, IWD can be a major catalyst and vehicle for driving greater change for women and moving closer to gender parity.
Will you be bold for change by taking groundbreaking action that truly drives the greatest change for women?
Each one of us can be a leader within our spheres of influence by taking bold, pragmatic action to accelerate gender parity. Through purposeful collaboration, we can help women advance and unleash their limitless potential offered to economies the world over.
We have urgent work to do. Are you ready to #BeBoldForChange this IWD 2017 and beyond?
