International Women's Day is celebrated every year on March 8. It's a day to raise a toast to the efforts of women across fields in shaping a more equal world. The theme of this year's #internationalwomensday is ‘Break the Bias’. We are proud to share that our #glbim BBA students also became the part of this campaign.
GLBIM #BBA students bring awareness to the gender biases women face every day in all walks of life. Gender bias refers to the preferential treatment of men, and whether the bias is deliberate or unconscious, it is holding women back from reaching their full potential. The #BreakTheBias movement aims to encourage people to call out gender bias when they see it happening, and holds us all accountable for our own thoughts and actions
Each year, IWD has a theme for the day. This year International Women’s Day 2022 Campaign theme is Break The Bias:
Imagine a gender equal world.
A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination.
A world that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive.
A world where difference is valued and celebrated.
Together we can forge women's equality.
Collectively we can all Break The Bias.
Individually, we're all responsible for our own thoughts and actions - all day, every day.
We can break the bias in our communities.
We can break the bias in our workplaces.
We can break the bias in our schools, colleges and universities.
This year, to raise awareness of the Break The Bias campaign, there is a hand pose which people can share to show their support. The campaign encourages people to ‘cross your arms to show solidarity’.
