Celebrate International Women’s Day at the Careers & Employability Centre

International Women’s Day (IWD) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity and IWD can be an important catalyst and vehicle for driving greater change for women and moving closer to gender parity. The World Economic Forum predicts the gender gap wont close entirely until 2186.
