Celebrating and sharing IWD Best Practice activity

 August 19, 2019

IWD Best Practice Winners

The aim of the annual IWD Best Practice Competition is to showcase types of activity that provide useful guidance and inspiration for further groups.

From grassroots groups to large-scale corporations, last year saw over 300 entries which was great growth from the previous year that saw over 100 entries.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the IWD Best Practice Competition was paused in 2020.

We do know, however, for those groups who were fortunate to be in countries where it was still possible to proceed with their IWD events, there was considerable and impressive activity. Much best practice and innovation was observed across the world - and International Women's Day as a worldwide movement was certainly mobilized.

Groups everywhere forged the IWD 2019 #BalanceforBetter campaign theme to celebrate women's achievements, call for a more gender-balanced world, and implement tangible action to drive women's equality. Over 300 groups entered the IWD 2019 Best Practice Competition showcasing their impressive achievements and explaining how they engaged audiences and communities to help accelerate women's equality. Congratulations to the winning groups.
