Do you wish to celebrate the inspirational women in your life? Whether it be work colleagues, employees, family, friends, or even yourself, International Women’s Day is the perfect day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of all women around the world.
Here are three ways to celebrate International Women’s Day at work or at home.
International Women’s Day is a global holiday celebrated each year on March 8th. This day celebrates women’s achievements, calls for positive change to advance women, and raises awareness for women’s equality.
For 2023, the International Women’s Day theme is #EmbraceEquity and aims to encourage the conversation on ‘why equal opportunities aren’t enough’ and ‘why equal isn’t always fair’.
Everyone, everywhere, can play an important part to support International Women’s Day by engaging in whatever way they deem most relevant and impactful. All International Women’s Day celebrations are valid and often vary from fundraisers and sponsored events to speeches and performances.

Whether you wish to celebrate women’s achievements at work or spend time embracing equity at home, there are many ways for groups and individuals to mark the occasion. Here are three ways you can support and celebrate International Women’s Day this year.
International Women’s Day is one of the most important days of the year to educate and raise awareness of gender equality and parity. Increased visibility and awareness worldwide during this day can help to overcome gender bias and impact positive change for women.
Educational activities that showcase women’s achievements, highlight gender struggles and convey the important message of International Women’s Day can help to change the narrative.
Free guidance, educational books, podcasts, positive news, and speakers are widely available to help organisations and individuals learn and educate others to forge equality.
Is your workforce made up of strong inspirational women? Or is there a super woman in your life that you just couldn’t live without? On International Women’s Day let them know how much you appreciate them and what they mean to you.
Show women on your team how much you care about them by making a lasting change in gender equality that extends beyond one special day. Whether that be by closing the gender pay gap in your company, committing to more equal representation, promoting female-led opportunities, donating to female-focused charities, or taking the time to identify the challenges of women in your workplace.
To support your sisterhood at home, a quick call or note to celebrate them and show your gratitude can go a long way. Showing that you value someone for their character, personality, and who they are can be a great confidence boost and encourage a drive for change.
Fundraising helps to create real change for women and gets a range of people involved and engaged in the fight for women’s rights. Donating all proceeds to female-focused charities can make an impactful difference for vulnerable women and girls around the world.
Women’s trivia quizzes, female-led workshops, women’s craft sales, sponsored runs, pay to wear purple day (International Women’s Day official colour), and charity live streams are just some of the ways you can fundraise for gender equality this year.
International Women’s Day-supported charities include:
