IWD 2024: how will you inspire inclusion?

With well over a century of history and change, the first International Women’s Day (IWD) was held in March 1911.

According to the campaign website, IWD isn’t country, group or organization specific. It’s a day of collective global activism and celebration that belongs to all those committed to forging women’s equality.

On an individual basis, it’s important to understand, value and seek out the inclusion of women and girls. Additionally, sharing this knowledge, support and encouragement with others is key.
