Inspiring Inclusion: International Women’s Day 2024

8th March 2024 marks the global celebration of International Women’s Day (IWD), a day dedicated to honouring the achievements of women, raising awareness about gender-based discrimination, and advocating for gender equality.

IWD has a rich history, dating back to the early 20th century when women began to organise and demand better working conditions, voting rights, and gender equality. Since then, the day has evolved into a global movement that unites people from all walks of life to advocate for the rights and empowerment of women.

This year’s theme, “Inspiring Inclusion,” emphasises the importance of creating a world where every individual, regardless of gender, is valued, respected, and provided with equal opportunities.

Supporting our core Values of People and Community, D2 celebrated IWD by hosting a breakfast club in each of our offices. As this year’s theme is #InspireInclusion, we asked our teams to share some of their pledges on IWD and how they plan to inspire inclusion.

IWD belongs to everyone, everywhere. Inclusion means all IWD action is valid. Let’s celebrate women’s achievements, raise awareness about discrimination, and take action to drive gender equality. Together, we can create a world where every individual is valued and empowered, regardless of gender. #InspireInclusion.

Happy International Women’s Day!
