Big Idea: Gender

Mar 9, 2021

In support of International Women’s Day, consider a Big Idea and Challenge based on the theme of #choosetochallenge. We agree that a “challenged world is an alert world.” By taking on challenges, we can uncover bias and inequality and work together to develop change attitudes and build better futures.

Let today be the start of a global effort to challenge gender stereotypes, discrimination, and inequality by choosing to challenge and committing to finding better ways to build an inclusive society.
