International Women's Day 2024


What is International Women's Day?

International Women's Day (IWD) falls annually on the 8th March and is a global day for celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women.

The day also marks a call to action to campaign for gender equality. IWD is one of the most important days of the year to:

·         celebrate women's achievements

·         educate and raise awareness about women's equality

·         call for positive change advancing women

·         lobby for accelerated gender parity

·         fundraise for women-focused charities

Everyone everywhere can play a part in helping forge gender equality. From a wide range of IWD campaigns, events, rallies, lobbying, and performances - to festivals, parties, fun runs, and celebrations - all IWD activity is valid. That's what makes IWD so inclusive.

The campaign theme for International Women's Day 2024 is Inspire Inclusion. When we inspire others to understand and value women's inclusion, we forge a better world and when women themselves are inspired to be included, there's a sense of belonging, relevance, and empowerment. Collectively, let's forge a more inclusive world for all women and girls.

Here at FRASAC we are marking International Women's Day by holding a Celebrating Success event with our staff team to share and celebrate our work place successes. Our colleagues have been encouraged to contribute to the event by sharing a client's journey, feedback received from a client or professional and any other work achievements to be celebrated.

At FRASAC, we celebrate women every day and we will remain committed to working towards gender equality.
