Invest in Women: Accelerate Progress

International Women's Day celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. It is also a chance for a call to action to accelerate gender equality.  Our event will be based on the International Institute for Sustainable Development's (IISD) theme for this year:

Count Her In: Accelerating gender equality through economic empowerment

This is aligned with the priority theme for the UN's 68th Commission on the status of Women: 'Accelerating the achievement of gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls by addressing poverty and strengthening institutions and financing with a gender perspective', and of course with the UN's chosen slogan for this year's International Women's Day:
