International Women's Day
08 March 2021
Monday 8 March 2021 is International Women’s Day (IWD) and as last year, we have prepared an inspirational report to celebrate this day. This year’s theme is #ChooseToChallenge.
We have used the initiative’s momentum to produce a strong report, not only celebrating IWD, but also driving an increase in gender equality and diversity. Diversity and inclusion is not a women’s issue, it’s a business issue. It is essential for economies and communities to thrive. A challenged world is an alert world. And from challenge comes change.
At BDO we all share a same common purpose, our WHY: People helping people achieve their dreams. Our motivation is to help people get where they want to be - whether they be our colleagues, our clients or others in the communities we are part of. It is an integral part of the BDO culture - to be focused on others, to help them achieve their dreams.
This year’s IWD report zooms in on the impact of a crisis year, acknowledging the many challenges working women faced, and continue to face during the pandemic. But, more importantly we emphasise the amazing resilience of our female colleagues, and how they have #chosentochallenge and #chosentolead.
