How to celebrate International Women’s Day at work 2021

Thinking of ways to celebrate International Women’s Day at work? Get involved in the #ChooseToChallenge campaign. To be part of the official IWD challenge, pose with your hand up high to show support and solidarity against inequality. If your team is still working from home or on staggered work schedules, consider creating a collage with everyone’s picture and submitting it as a pledge on the IWD site.

Additionally, International Women’s Day presents a great opportunity for HR to review internal diversity and inclusion (D&I) policies. As an organization leader, a creative idea for Women’s Day is to offer better pay structures to guarantee pay equity as well as push for more women in leadership and C-suite executive roles. Even though we still have a long way to go when it comes to gender parity, any effort that we can make in that direction can help.
