“A wise woman wishes to be no one’s enemy; a wise woman refuses to be anyone’s victim.” – Maya Angelou For over a century, International Women’s Day has been held on 8 March each year; a day to celebrate and advocate for women’s rights and equality around the world. Whether your team is based in the office or working remotely, it’s important to celebrate events like International Women’s Day meaningfully by honoring women’s achievements, challenging biases or supporting women-owned businesses Here are some things you can do: 1 . #BreakTheBias and show your support on social This year’s official International Women’s Day theme is #BreakTheBias. It’s a call-to-action to challenge by raising awareness against bias, celebrating women’s achievement, and taking action for equality. One simple, yet impactful way to celebrate International Women’s Day this year is to show your commitment to challenging by taking part in the #BreakTheBias social media campaign. Take a photo of yourself crossing your hands in an X and share it on your preferred social media platform(s) using #BreakTheBias. 2. Set up a (virtual) coffee date with a woman in your network Sometimes, the best way to get inspired or learn something new is through a simple conversation.
