#EachforEqual: SDIP celebrating International Women’s Day 2020
News Post: Chloe Wong
‘Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day.’
This year on International Women’s Day we stand up for a gender equal world.
This year’s #EachforEqual campaign is a call for collective action – to challenge stereotypes and biases, broaden perceptions and celebrate the women who have come before us.
Gender equality is not solely a women’s issue, it requires collective and conscious action from each individual.
SDIP is committed to pushing for gender equality and equal participation in integrated water resources management.
Over the past eight years, we have been actively challenging gender stereotypes and advocating for gender parity.
This year, the SDIP team wants to acknowledge and celebrate the successes and achievements of the women who have come before us.
We believe that each individual person can play a part in calling out problematic behaviour, challenging biases and stereotypes, and creating an inclusive workplace community.
This year, and for all the years to come, we’re committed to standing together to empower women and tip the scales to ensure a gender equal world.
