International Women's Day

Embrace Equity female in purple giving herself a hug

All are encouraged to wear purple on International Women's Day Wednesday, March 8 to signify justice and dignity. Truly embrace equity on International Women's Day and beyond. Strike the #EmbraceEquity pose.

Equity means creating an inclusive world. When we embrace equity, we embrace diversity, and we embrace inclusion. We embrace equity to forge harmony and unity, and to help drive success for all. Equality is the goal, and equity is the means to get there. Through the process of equity, we can reach equality.
