This year, International Women’s Day is all about gender balance.

Collective action and shared responsibility for driving a gender-balanced world is key. International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women – while also marking a call to action for accelerating gender balance. This year’s theme is #BetterforBalance – a theme that aims to inspire discussion and action related to gender balance in the boardroom, in government, in media and sports coverage, and among employees.

Packimpex believes that gender balance is essential for economies, communities and businesses to thrive.

The first International Women’s Day occurred in 1911, supported by over one million people. Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. IWD is not country, group or organization specific.
