Today marks the date of International Women’s Day, celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women.
This year’s theme is #PressforProgress which highlights women’s equality movements and campaigns like #MeToo and #TimesUp that have driven a high momentum and press coverage for gender parity.
It’s no doubt that pages upon pages of coverage relating to gender equality are posted daily, and you have probably seen content on your own social media feeds. The news spread across the globe aims to make positive gains for the movement of advocacy, activism and support of women’s equality.
Women’s Day has released several information packs designed for those looking to support gender equality, including ‘selfie cards’ that you can use in selfies to share on your social media channels. The cards include powerful messages including ‘We will forge positive visibility of women’ and ‘we will challenge stereotypes and bias’.
Here at Profound Services, we are proud to support such campaigns - you can check out our social media channels for some photographs of our staff and apprentices supporting International Women’s Day!
You can support the day by motivating your family, friends, work colleagues and your communities to think and act for the campaign while being gender inclusive. Tell us how you’re supporting International Women’s Day at your workplace on our social channels!
