To celebrate International Women’s Day, we encourage everyone to #BreakTheBias

Today is International Women’s Day (IWD). It is a day we come together to reflect on the progress made, call for change, and celebrate women’s achievements worldwide. 

This year’s official theme is #BreakTheBias, encouraging everyone to take the time to have conversations and a call to action to challenge the status quo by raising awareness against gender stereotypes, bias, and discrimination. 

Let us imagine a gender-equal world that is diverse and inclusive while differences are valued and celebrated. Individually, we’re accountable for our own thoughts and actions. it is possible to build a world free of bias, and stereotypes and together we can forge women’s equality. We can break the bias in our communities, schools, workplaces, universities and collectively, we have the power #BreakTheBias on International’s Women’s Day and beyond.

One simple yet impactful way to honour International Women’s Day this year is to show commitment to challenging inequality by taking part in the #BreakTheBias social media campaign by crossing arms to show solidarity. We invited a few of our extraordinary team members at Momentum Collective to join us in this campaign and tell us what #IWD means to them.
