For over a century, International Women’s Day, held on 8 March each year, has marked a day of celebration and advocacy for women’s rights and equality around the world. Inspired by Workflowmax blog post, we share few excellent ways that you, your team and your community can celebrate International Women’s Day this year and do your part to advocate for gender equality.

 

Donate to charity

If you’re looking for a way to make a difference in a worthy cause this March, consider donating to a charitable organisation supporting women – either locally or globally.

On 9 March 2021, Community Empowerment Support Organisation (CESO), a British education charity started up by British Federation of Women Graduates (BFWG) member Rita Edmond, will hold an online fundraising event to celebrate women’s day and the empowerment of girls in rural Sierra Leone. The fund raised through the event will be directed toward the completion and the furnishing of the Ivor Leigh Memorial School Nursery and Vocational Centre for young women in Kaningo, a city on the outskirt of Freetown, Sierra Leone. On this occasion, BFWG President Patrice Wellesley-Cole, will speak on the importance of female education in disadvantaged communities. Click HERE to register.

Host or attend an online panel

Hearing women share their experiences, knowledge, and advice is one of the best ways to get inspired to make change. This year, as most of the world is gathering online instead of in-person, there are tons of great virtual events planned for International Women’s Day.

As you’re planning your celebrations, research some interesting events in your industry or community and encourage your friends, family, or team to register with you. Here’s a list of a few events to get you started:

 

Acknowledge the awesome women in your life

Sometimes, simple words of encouragement and love can go a long way in lifting someone up and inspiring them to keep going.

Whether it’s your mother, grandmother, sister, daughter, girlfriend, or friend – send a text, call an important woman in your life to let them know how awesome they are.

Happy International Day  Mothers, Daughters, Visionaries, Queens, Rulers, Women!
