International Women's Day

International Women's Day (IWD) is celebrated on 8 March each year in more than 100 countries around the world. It is a day to reflect on and celebrate the social, political, academic, economic and cultural achievements of women. It also marks a day for acknowledging the challenges faced by women and is a call to action to continue to press for gender parity. This year’s theme for IWD is Choose to Challenge.

To celebrate IWD 2021, Baringa employees are making their own personal pledges on how they will choose to challenge gender stereotypes in their personal and professional lives. We have created Baringa's Wall of Pledges to highlight some of the steps we are taking to create an equal workplace and world. We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women's achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.

From challenge comes change, so let's all choose to challenge.
