Celebrate International Women’s Day 2023 with Europe Direct Waterford, Waterford Libraries and Waterford Integration Services. The International Women’s Day 2023 campaign theme is #EmbraceEquity. A focus on gender equity needs to be part of every society’s DNA. Equity means creating a fair and equal world. Challenge gender stereotypes, call out discrimination, draw attention to bias, and seek out inclusion.
Join us on Wednesday 8th March, from 10:30am in the Theatre Royal, Waterford for a morning of speakers and music. Learn how we all can Embrace Equity and create a fair and equal world.
Date: Wednesday 8th March
