  • International Women's Day 2021
    - #ChoosetoChallenge

  • International Women's Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality. The theme for 2021 in #ChoosetoChallenge.

    A challenged world is an alert world. Individually, we're all responsible for our own thoughts and actions - all day, every day. We can choose to challenge and call out gender bias, discrimination and stereotyping. We can choose to seek out and celebrate women's achievements. Collectively, we can create an inclusive and more gender-equal world. From challenge comes change, so let's all choose to challenge.

    In Fort Saskatchewan, we are planning a week-long virtual celebration including stories from inspiring women, prompts to take action in your own lives, ways to network and engage with other local women, as well as an evening event on Friday, March 5, 2021 that will have impactful break-out sessions and a keynote speaker that we can't wait to announce!

    More information about this incredible event, including registration and how to purchase a Celebration Box, is coming soon! To stay up to date on everything going on, please connect with us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/FortSaskatchewanInternationalWomensDay.
