International Women’s Day is a day to celebrate the significance of women as well as many of the contributions and achievements of women throughout history. It also is a day for reflection that serves as a call to action for greater gender justice in the world. On this day, women are recognised for their achievements no matter their nationality, race, linguistic, cultural, political or economic status. This year’s global theme was “Think Equal, Build Smart, innovate for a Change” which corresponds well with our core values.
