International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. WILD joins in this celebration because they believe strategic collaborations based on a foundation of shared purpose, trust and appreciation can impact positive change for women. Help WILD #BreaktheBias today and every day.
Bias – whether deliberate or unconscious – is holding women back in the workplace. It makes it harder for women to get hired and promoted and negatively impacts their day-to-day work experiences. This hurts women and makes it harder for companies to level the playing field.
This year’s campaign is Break the Bias. Join WILD each hour at 12PM EST, 12PM CST, 12PM MST, and 12PM PST to discuss a theme on how we can #breakthebias as individuals and as a community.
The WIL Global Gathering is an online event to celebrate International Women’s Day, the 3rd anniversary of the Women In Lighting (WIL) Project, and to connect its growing network and community together. All are welcome. It features a selection of sessions themed as follows: Global Light, Global Action, Global Work and Global Journey.
The event is divided into three parts to ensure presentations from around the world are included and participation from different time zones are enabled. This will ensure the event is truly global. Each part will finish with one of WIL’s extremely popular Social Roulette sessions where people from all parts of the global community can meet and speak to one another.
