The Women In Lighting project has always been about gender equity and as such we have striven to create as many industry situations as possible where the scenario is 50:50. We feel it wouldn’t therefore be fair to only celebrate International Women’s Day. This year, we want to celebrate International Men’s Day too.
This creates an opportunity on November 19th to celebrate the positive value that men bring to our world, our families and our communities. It gives us a chance to consider the themes that International Men’s Day 2021 is promoting; to improve gender relations and promote gender equality not only for men but for women too.
It’s also a chance to look at the global facts and figures that relate to men’s well being. With these in mind, our male supporters and allies will be hosting a series of international walks on November 19th. WIL partner, Designers Mind will be creating a set of talking points for each walk focussed on mental health and well being and the walk will offer the chance to get out of the office, connect, discuss and consider the themes promoted for 2021.
If you are interested in walking or hosting a walk, please contact: email@example.com

Please share with male colleagues and WIL supporters.
