Programme Lead at Waterford Integration Services, Anne Nolan will MC the event which will highlight and celebrate women’s achievements.
International Women’s Day reminds us that whether deliberate or unconscious, bias makes it difficult for women to move ahead. Knowing that bias exists isn’t enough; action is needed to level the playing field. Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day. We can imagine a gender equal world, a world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. We can strive for a world that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive and a world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women’s equality. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements.
Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world. Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias on International Women’s Day (IWD) and beyond.
This is a free event but booking is essential.Register Now for Break the Bias - Global Women's Conference
