Gender parity won’t happen overnight, but the good news is that women and organisations worldwide are making positive gains, day by day. There’s a growing global movement of awareness, support, activism and advocacy. But we can’t be complacent. Now more than ever, there’s a strong push for action to progress gender parity.

Together, let’s #ChooseToChallenge and be resolute in accelerating gender parity.
