International Women’s Day 2024

International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day, celebrated every year on 8 March, also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. International Women’s Day 2024 campaign theme is #inspireinclusion.
“As when we inspire others to understand and value women’s inclusion, we forge a better world. And when women themselves are inspired to be included, there’s a sense of belonging, relevance and empowerment.”
The aim of the IWD 2024 #inspireinclusion campaign is to collectively forge a more inclusive world for women.
