International Women's Day

International Women’s Day (IWD) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women - while also marking a call to action for accelerating gender equity.

EUR believes fundamentally in enabling our community to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and above all, celebrate women’s achievements. Each of these steps helps to create a gender-equal community, society and world that all of us can benefit from.

On or around 8th March, EUR hosts events to mark this significant occasion. It is an excellent opportunity to broaden the discussion about the key issues that women face and to hear from thought leaders interested in driving change.
