Today, we take a moment to celebrate women. We celebrate the contributions and drive towards the advancement of positive development. The world has indeed become a better place with Women actively bringing their quota to the table.
It is celebrated by the United Nations, technical agencies, other bodies and individuals across the world that seek to promote the participation of women as equal partners with men in achieving sustainable development, peace, security, and full respect for human rights.
The role of a woman in a society cannot be de-emphasized and it is common knowledge that training a woman is synonymous to training a society. It is therefore paramount that we all take a conscious effort to remain committed to helping women and girls achieve their ambitions; challenge conscious and unconscious bias; call for gender-balanced leadership; value women and men’s contributions equally; and create inclusive flexible cultures.
How can you join the celebrations? Say thank you to a woman around you today. It will mean a lot to her.
Lots of Love,
