IWD 2018 campaign theme: #PressforProgress. We call on the masses or call on yourself to help forge a better working world - a more gender inclusive world.

Each one of us - with women, men and non-binary people joining forces - can be a leader within our own spheres of influence by taking bold pragmatic action to accelerate gender parity. Through purposeful collaboration, we can help women advance and unleash the limitless potential offered to economies the world over. We have urgent work to do.
