Celebrate International Women’s Day in Whistler
International Women’s Day 2020 is on March 8, and you can join the celebrations with some of our Members!
This year’s International Women’s Day (IWD) theme is #EachforEqual. IWD provides an important opportunity to showcase commitment to women’s equality, launch new initiatives, celebrate women’s achievements and raise awareness.
“Equality is not a women’s issue, it’s a business issue.
Gender equality is essential for economies and communities to thrive.
A gender equal world can be healthier, wealthier and more harmonious – so what’s not great about that?
The race is on for the gender equal boardroom, a gender equal government, gender equal media coverage, gender equal workplaces, gender equal sports coverage, more gender equality in health and wealth … so let’s make it happen. Let’s be #EachforEqual.”
