Each year, we love the opportunity to celebrate women leaders, employees, role models, family members, bosses, best friends, colleagues, and the list could go on.
On 8 March annually, International Women’s Day (IWD) serves as a reminder to the strength of women, the beauty in diversity, and the steps we’ve all taken in the positive direction. However, it also serves as a stark call-to-action to all the ways in which we haven’t made progress – women’s rights, education and literacy, boardroom imbalances, pay inequality, societal stereotypes, and the lack of diversity and representation in its several forms.
We’re fortunate to speak to some of the most progressive leaders who’re not only paving the way for better representation at work, but also fighting for new ways of thinking, behaving and acting by imbibing a mindset of respect, tolerance and equality in their personal and professional lives.
The women in leadership positions, teachers, role models, game changers, caregivers and forward thinkers – they are an inspiration to all. Each and every lady is a unique combination of strength, intelligence, love and beauty. A woman is never ever one single line. She is a glorious swaddle of characteristics and experiences that have the power to change lives. Across history, women have overcome limitations and have conquered demographical constraints.
The women in our lives and beyond contribute towards success and betterment – the sun doesn’t set without their love and contribution. It is important to recognize and appreciate the incredible and dynamic ladies in our lives. Each new day, they’re inspiring us in ways often difficult to describe. Without these beautiful women, the world would be a dull, empty place. A woman is a hearty combination of positive thoughts, bold colors, unconditional love and the need to give.
This year’s theme by UN for International Women’s Day (8 March) is, “I am Generation Equality: Realizing Women’s Rights”.
The Generation Equality campaign is bringing together people of every gender, age, ethnicity, race, religion and country, to drive actions that will create the gender-equal world we all deserve.
