Speakers for International Women's Day
With the goal of a gender equal world, the 2023 International Women’s Day theme is #EmbraceEquity. A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. A world that’s diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated.
As we celebrate the diverse social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women on the 8th March, we must continue to empower women and challenge gender bias all year round. Businesses are increasingly understanding the value and benefits that a diverse workforce can bring. All around the world, we should be proactive in seeking to break down gender barriers and highlight the importance of gender equality.
We work with a wonderful array of speakers who can share their ideas and perspectives for your IWD event. Here are a few to consider:
