Today we celebrate women with the theme #EmbraceEquity. One of the quotes utilized in the International Women’s Day campaign is “Equality is giving everyone a shoe. Equity is giving everyone a shoe that fits.” In today’s world, we need to make sure we’re wearing the right shoes so we can all be in the race together.
The World Economic Forum’s July 2022 Insight report noted that at the rate the world is going, it’ll take 132 years to reach full parity in the gender gap. Let’s do what we can to shorten that time frame.
Look around you and embrace the women leaders in your lives and open your eyes to disparities that may be holding you or others back. Let’s give anyone who has ideas to strengthen society, create technological opportunities and/or develop medical advances an outlet so we can all live better lives.
Please #EmbraceEquity today and every day!
