2017 campaign theme: #BeBoldForChange

For International Women's Day 2017 and beyond, individuals and organizations were encouraged to #BeBoldForChange by taking groundbreaking action that truly drives the greatest change for women. Help is needed to forge a better working world - a more gender inclusive world. Many influencers around the world have committed to bold action to accelerate gender parity, acknowledging their responsibility to do what they can to forge a more gender inclusive world. Have you submitted your #BeBoldForChange action yet?

International Women's Day as a platform for change, is it possible?

The World Economic Forum predicts the gender gap won't close entirely until 2186. This is too long to wait. Around the world, IWD is an important opportunity to drive driving greater change for women and to accelerate gender parity. back in 2016, organizations and individuals around the world were invited to support the #PledgeForParity campaign and commit to helping women and girls achieve their ambitions; challenge conscious and unconscious bias; call for gender-balanced leadership; value women and men's contributions equally; and create inclusive flexible cultures. From awareness raising to concrete action, organizations rallied their people to pledge support to help forge gender parity on International Women’s Day (IWD) and beyond.

Each one of us - with women, men and non-binary people joining forces - can be a leader within our own spheres of influence by taking bold pragmatic action to accelerate gender parity. Through purposeful collaboration, we can help women advance and unleash the limitless potential offered to economies the world over. We have urgent work to do - together!
