Celebrating International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day (IWD) celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. Run annually on March 8, the day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. IWD provides an important moment to showcase commitment to women’s equality, launch new initiatives and action, celebrate women’s achievements, raise awareness, highlight gender parity gains and more. This year, the IWD campaign theme is #PressforProgress.

At IOEE, we like to share the achievements of our IOEE members, networks and partners and to celebrate International Women’s Day, we’ve collated a selection of previous articles featuring inspiring female entrepreneurs, enterprising learners and academics below.
