International Women’s Day 2018 #PressforProgress
This International Women’s day theme is #PressforProgress.
With the World Economic Forum’s 2017 Global Gender Gap Report findings telling us that gender parity is over 200 years away – there has never been a more important time to keep motivated and #PressforProgress.
I’ll be celebrating women’s achievements this, and every year. I’ll be challenging stereotypes and bias and influencing others’ beliefs and actions and pushing to be heard and respected. I’ll be doing these things by supporting women during their pregnancy and birthing, by partnering with other women who work in birth and by encouraging my incredibly strong and influential women friends and colleagues in their work and lives.
These Gender Parity changes won’t happen overnight, they’ll take time; but there is now, more than ever, such inspirational change already happening and we can be proud about that. Women are strong and powerful, they illicit change through joining with others, by banding together and supporting one another.
“Individually we are but one drop, together we are an ocean” Ryunosuke Satoro
This past year more than ever I’ve learned that encouraging and working with others (in business), rather than seeing them as competition has been so freeing and such a wonderfully positive experience, I can’t believe I ever did things differently.
Life is about constant evolution and change, how will you be the change you wish to see this year? How will you #Pressforprogress ?
Happy International Womens Day wonderful people.
