Tomorrow is International Women’s Day

For International Women’s Day and beyond, let’s all fully #EmbraceEquity.

Equity isn’t just a nice-to-have, it’s a must-have.

The aim of the IWD 2023 #EmbraceEquity campaign theme is to get the world talking about Why equal opportunities aren’t enough. People start from difference places, so true inclusion and belonging require equitable action.

Encourage and rally your friends, family, colleagues and community to embrace equity.

Together we can work collectively to impact positive change.

Together we can all help forge an equal world.

Let’s all embrace equity today, and always.
