CELEBRATE: Happy International Women’s Day 2021 – Celebrating Women in Leadership
Happy International Women’s Day, friends! This year’s theme is ‘Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world’. If you have something yellow, grab it and put it on – the theme color for today’s celebration is yellow. We celebrate all of the wonderful women working for a more equal world and a better world for everyone. The journey of RightsTech Women has involved the support and contributions from many amazing women! We celebrate that, and you!
What women leaders have in common is that they do not give up. Let’s keep making things better for the women and girls around the world today and of the future by doing what we can today – literally today. Take an action today like the ones we mention next, and thank a woman leader who has made a difference to your life. And keep going! We need to work together to achieve equality for women and girls in STEM by 2030 (SDG 5). We can do it!
