International Women’s Day is a global day held annually on March 8th to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. Each year, groups come together to celebrate women’s achievements or rally for women’s equality worldwide. The theme for International Women’s Day 2022 is #BreakTheBias. 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.
To celebrate International Women’s Day, we recognize the following organizations, who are also Social Solutions clients, that are working towards a gender equal world. We encourage you to check out these organizations and consider donating to help them accelerate equality for all.
