The FSA acknowledges International Women’s Day as an opportunity to reflect upon the work we are doing, and the work we still have to do, to support women and girls.
Last year a colleague was lamenting that there still was not equality between genders. I said that I totally agreed but also stated that enormous strides have been made. With that in mind, I thought that it must be far better for woman now as compared to 100, 50, or even 25 years ago. However, there is so much that still needs to be done. We need to have a world where there is gender-balance in government, boardrooms, educational opportunities, employment opportunities, and salaries.
For economies and communities to flourish to their full potential, we need to work together to achieve gender balance in all aspects of our lives. We can achieve this through taking collective action and shared responsibility.
