Help challenge gender stereotypes by supporting International Women's Day (IWD) on the 8 March 2021.

International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

This year’s UN theme is ‘women in leadership’ and promotes

  • women’s and girl’s achievements,
  • women’s independence and decision-making and
  • challenges gender stereotypes and roles.

Join us online

We’ve produced an inspiring online event of four motivational women from diverse backgrounds who shared their stories with us discussing gender equality and women in leadership. The pre-recorded discussion will also include insights from our Mayor and Councillors.

The online event will go live on Wednesday 10 March, 7.30pm on our Facebook page.
