International Women’s Day 2022: 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 equality for all of our sisters*.
Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias.
