International Women’s Day (IWD) on 8 March is a global day celebrating achievements of women in all spheres. It provides an important opportunity to emphasise women’s empowerment while calling for greater equality.
The theme for International Women’s Day, 8 March, 2022 (IWD 2022) is, “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow”, recognizing the contribution of women and girls around the world, who are leading the charge on climate change adaptation, mitigation, and response, to build a more sustainable future for all.
We can actively choose to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and honour women’s achievements.
The funds raised from this campaign will be used to support our local programmes, channeling towards strengthening and deepening our flagship Girls2Pioneers STEM programme to narrow the gender equality gap through education, UWS Boys Empowered programme that empowers boys to prevent gender-based violence and GenSafe Workplaces programme to help organisations support employees impacted by domestic violence and abuse.
