IWD2017 #BeBoldForChange

International Women’s Day on 8 March 2017 celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women across the world and makes a call to action to gender parity. We can all be a leader within our own lives to influence and take action to accelerate the collective advancement of women, important as this then enables the potential of economies across the globe. Join us at the University of Worcester to #BeBoldForChange.

We are presenting an array of academic, practitioner and individual perspectives on 8 March, celebrating the resilience, the courage and the strength of women refugees who flee their homes with their families to safety. Our IWD2017 theme is resilience of women, positivity in the face of the most arduous challenges faced in the mass movement of displaced communities in the world.

We are inviting delegates to donate new packets of pants which will be distributed to those currently displaced in Europe via People in Motion. Please see the guidance below.
