Today is International Women’s Day

#BalanceforBetter
Canada’s Theme: #InnovateForChange

Celebrate women’s achievement. Raise awareness against bias. Take action for equality.
The future is exciting. Let’s build a gender-balanced world.
Everyone has a part to play – all the time, everywhere.
From grassroots activism to worldwide action, we are entering an exciting period of history where the world expects balance. We notice its absence and celebrate its presence.
