08 Mar 8 March
On 8 March, we celebrate the social, political, economic and cultural achievements of women around the world and call for further action to achieve gender equality.
The theme for this year’s International Women’s Day, set by the UN, is “Innovation and Technology for Gender Equality” and highlights the important contributions of women and girls in the fields of technology and digital education. Women’s full participation in technology brings more creative solutions and innovations that better address women’s needs and promote gender equality. The chosen theme also aims to examine the impact of the digital gender gap on widening economic and social inequalities. It highlights the importance of protecting women’s and girls’ rights in the digital space and the issue of online and gender-based violence enabled by information and communication technologies.
On 8 March, we would like to congratulate all our female colleagues on all their achievements and thank our colleagues for their support in achieving gender equality at work and in society more broadly.
