On 8th March 2021 many women around the world will be celebrating International Women’s Day. We are no exception!
A challenged world is an alert world. Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day.
We can choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements.
Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.
From challenge comes change, so let’s all choose to challenge.
We want to bring women all together under our campaign and showcase to the world that as women we #choosetochallenge.
The women we work with in our projects, do not have a voice. Often suffering under abusive conditions. We want to help them and be their voice.
Michelle Eddahar founder of BWi Group who are the main sponsor for this event:
Business Women in is an inclusive business networking group run by women, specifically for women.
Our ethos is simple, to provide a tolerant, safe and welcoming networking and learning group that’s inclusive of ethnic background, religion, sexual orientation, disability, age and anyone who identifies as female.
This is why I am choosing to sponsor and support People against Poverty’s International Women’s day campaign. A truly worthwhile cause.
Uplifting women and offering a supportive, non-judgmental, respectful, fierce, loyal and open-minded space for fellow women in business to have a voice is my mission.
I love this idea, what do I need to do to become part of this campaign?
