International Women’s Day
Details:

International Women’s Day ​​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.​ The celebration has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD run by the Suffragettes in 1911.​ This International Women’s Day, let’s inspire others by being ambassadors for equality in our workplaces and communities. Supporting gender parity is about recognizing inequality when you see it and taking action to prevent it from happening to you or anyone else.

International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination
Details:

The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination is observed annually on 21 March. On that day, in 1960, police opened fire and killed 69 people at a peaceful demonstration in Sharpeville, South Africa, against the apartheid “pass laws”. Racial and ethnic discrimination occur on a daily basis, hindering progress for millions of people around the world. Racism and intolerance can take various forms — from denying individuals the basic principles of equality to fuelling ethnic hatred that may lead to genocide — all of which can destroy lives and fracture communities. Click here to learn more about this important issue.
