It’s time to ‘Break The Bias’: International Women’s Day
International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated to recognize women around the world, regardless of their culture, political affiliations, linguistic, national, ethnic, or economic, for their personal and professional achievements. Now it's time to recognize the value and impact of a woman. The happiness they bring into our lives, the achievements made across history, and the future we can look forward to changing.
The theme of this year's International Women's Day is #BreakTheBias which is a global campaign that has been initiated to raise awareness around bias and encourage action toward women's equality. The campaign seeks to elevate the visibility of women creatives with a focus on building workplaces where women thrive. Inspires women to pursue their goals without barrier, celebrate women solidifying change, forge women's equality in tech and empower women's healthcare choices.
Now it's time for all the leaders to uplift the voices of women everywhere for those who hesitate to speak up about bias outside and in the workplace and for those who are actively advocating against it.
International Women's Day is a beautiful moment for all of us to reflect and celebrate the strides that are made in women empowerment globally, regardless of gender. Together, we can make more progress in support of women's rights economically, socially, politically, and culturally to take it further.
It may not be noticeable to many but gender biases and stereotypes have been deeply ingrained into our working norms by influencing the way we work straight from the hiring processes to our daily lives.
We hope that this information has inspired you to join in the process of challenging bias and spark change everywhere.
Interesting things that you may not have known about Women's Day.
Most of us are aware that March 8 is dedicated to celebrating women and women's rights and is known as International Women's Day. But don't forget that while celebrating 1 day out of 365 where women are honored it doesn't mean that we forget about supporting the women around you the remaining 364 days of the year. We strongly believe that each and every day we should support the people around us irrespective of their gender. So, keep an eye out and be there for them when they need a helping band or a strong shoulder to lean on.
Hurrah for each and every woman we love and those that we don't know buy who work hard to make a better world each and every day.
