What is it?
A day to celebrate women’s achievements in a gender-equal world free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination.
When is it?
Wednesday 8th March 2023
This year’s campaign theme is #EmbraceEquity. Although equality and equity are similar, It is important to understand the difference between the two.
As per the IWD website:
“Equality means each individual or group of people is given the same resources or opportunities.
Equity recognizes that each person has different circumstances, and allocates the exact resources and opportunities needed to reach an equal outcome.”
They use a simple yet effective bicycle illustration to distinguish between the two. Equality provides the same bicycle for all while equity adapts each bicycle type to meet that individual’s needs.
