International Women’s Day

Last week I was given a great opportunity to be part of this amazing video for International Women’s Day today on 8th March. It’s produced by Media Bites Ltd and filmed by Dean White and Jamie Partridge of White Partridge Media.

The film was the brainwave of local businesswoman, Anisha Joshi, owner of the Woodside Clinic in Hitchin. International Women’s Day celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women – with the day also marking a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

Use the hashtag #BeBoldForChange.

Excerpt from IWM Website:

IWD 2017 campaign theme: #BeBoldForChange
For International Women’s Day 2017, we’re asking you to #BeBoldForChange.
Call on the masses or call on yourself to help forge a better working world – a more gender inclusive world.
Submit your #BeBoldForChange action via the IWD website.

International Women’s Day as a vehicle for change, is it possible?
Last year, organizations and individuals around the world supported the #PledgeForParity campaign and committed to help 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 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 (IWD) and beyond.

But the World Economic Forum predicts the gender gap won’t close entirely until 2186. This is too long to wait. Around the world, IWD can be an important catalyst and vehicle for driving greater change for women and moving closer to gender parity.

What if the world truly stepped up to take bold action?
Will you #BeBoldForChange on International Women’s Day 2017 and beyond by taking groundbreaking action that truly drives the greatest change for women.

Each one of us – with women, men and non-binary people joining forces – can be a leader within our own spheres of influence by taking bold pragmatic action to accelerate gender parity. Through purposeful collaboration, we can help women advance and unleash the limitless potential offered to economies the world over.

We have urgent work to do. Are you ready to #BeBoldForChange this IWD 2017 and beyond?

#BeBoldForChange NOW
