The world made a #PledgeForParity in 2016

Across the world, people and groups made a #PledgeForParity - and the pledges still continue today, so have you made a pledge yet? This year, for International Women's Day 2017, we're asking the world to step up and take bold action to help accelerate gender parity via the #BeBoldForChange IWD 2017 campaign theme.


Check out some of last year's highlights


Here's who has been making their #PledgeForParity

See how people around the world have been sharing their #PledgeForParity socially once they've pledged. And remember you can still make a pledge because there remains a lot of work to do to help accelerate gender parity across the world. Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean.


Run your own #PledgeForParity campaign

One of the most powerful ways you can influence how quickly gender parity is achieved is through championing your own #PledgeForParity campaign. Helping others recognize the impact of their actions on behalf of women, cascades awareness and behavioural change which accelerates achievement of the economic value of gender parity.
