March the 8th is International Women's Day. This year's theme is #BreaktheBias
Imagine a gender-equal world.
A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination.
A world that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive.
A world where difference is valued and celebrated.
Together we can forge women's equality.
Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias.
Find all you need to know on the International Women's Day website. For example, the IWD LinkedIn Learning resource covers important topics including:
Break the Bias: Commit to Action To break the bias women continue to experience, we need to understand what it is and how it shows up in our decisions and actions. The adverse effects of bias are harmful to individuals as well as organizations. Learn about the pervasiveness of bias and how we can all come together and collectively reduce discrimination in all aspects of our lives.
Valuing Intersectionality: Challenge Societal Labels It's essential to challenge societal labels to differentiate and identify people or groups. Labelling can be incredibly destructive to individuals, organizations, and communities. Only through understanding and valuing intersectionality, will we break the bias women and colleagues alike continue to experience.
Women's Voices: Setting the Stage for Equity The state of women in the workplace hangs in the balance. Women continue to face barriers to opportunities in today's workplace, making it an uneven playing field. The path forward is clear: we need to first recognize how and why this is still occurring, create a workplace where all women feel valued, and elevate women's voices.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion: Understand the Importance and Differences Amplify and reinforce your commitment by learning the differences between diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). Break the bias, drive change, and advocate for a healthier workplace where everyone feels a strong sense of self-worth.
Allyship: Closing the Gap between Recognition and Action How do we create a world where everyone is afforded the same opportunities and feels safe to speak up without retaliation? How do we get there? Allyship is the first step. Learn what it means to be an ally and commit to creating a culture of accountability and belonging.
Cultural Diversity: Why It Is an Imperative Understand the value of cultural diversity and upskill your cultural competence as organizations make cultural diversity a core priority. Embracing cultural diversity creates space for women, and all employees, to feel comfortable bringing their unique ideas, perspectives, and experiences to the table.
