Journée de la Femme
International Women’s Day 2017 will be held on Wednesday 8th March, with activities taking place from 27th Feb – 19th March.
The World Economic Forum predicts that gender disparity will not be completely eradicated until the year 2189. So this year’s theme, Be Bold for Change, is calling on all women, and all men, to help forge a better, working world; a more inclusive, gender-equal world, now.
With many events across the region, now is your chance to be a leader within your own sphere and participate in purposeful collaboration to enhance the roles and rights of women around the world.
