International Women’s Day takes place on 8th March and celebrates social, economic and political achievements of women across the globe.
The theme of this year’s campaign theme is #EachforEqual to remind everyone that we are all responsible for creating a gender-equal world. By celebrating women’s achievements, raising awareness of bias and calling out inequality the campaign says we can all bring about change.

Jessica, Technical Support Specialist
"International Women’s Day is very important. We should live in a world where opportunities are open to all, regardless of gender."

Faye, Marketing Manager
"Female role models are vital in ensuring that the women of the future see the range of opportunities open to them. Thanks to all the women who have shown me the way!"
Antonio, R&D Chemistry Manager
"Did you know that women do 60% of the world's work but earn only 10% of the world's income? That is why International Women's Day is important to me."
Christelle, Business Development Manager
"A woman is a super multi-tasker with her roles as a daughter, sister, wife, friend, colleague or boss. I don’t think we even have to strive for equality in the workplace, it is essentially proving how unique and excellent we are in our chosen roles.
Bryony, Senior Regional Sales Manager
"International Women’s Day celebrates women from all over the world and from different areas of life. We are all strong, but not always in the ways most people think – the strongminded businesswomen, the selfless women who volunteer their own time to help others, the resilient women who are raising our next generation... These women should all equally be celebrated today and every single day."
Ying, USA Sales and Marketing Manager
“We work hard and we are lucky. We have been given equal opportunities. We are doing it to support those who are still fighting for equal opportunities.”
