International Women’s Day 2017: 7 Events to Empower and Inspire

Be Bold.

 

We’re celebrating women around the world! As always, we’re ready to face gender inequality issues head on, calling on girls everywhere to stand up and work together as one to create more gender-inclusive societies. Last year we took the #PledgeForPlarity, and made a commitment to help women and young girls achieve their ambitions, and this year we continue to close the gender gap and be a catalyst for change around the world. Look how far we’ve come, girls – will you #BeBoldForChange, too?

Take inspiration from all of the amazing International Women’s Day events happening in our city and raise a glass to all of the incredible women in your life.

Take the pledge!
