This International Women's Day 2017, we invite you to #BeBoldForChange.
Every single person can play a part in advocating better outcomes for women. Through meaningful celebration and bold targeted action, we can all be responsible leaders in creating a more gender inclusive world. The World Economic Forum predicts the gender gap won't close entirely until 2186. This is too long to wait. The International Women's Day provides an important opportunity for ground breaking action that will truly drive greater change for women.
To be part of this movement, please go to the International Women's Day website.
ABM is working hard to enhance gender equality and inclusion across all our community development projects. Our Economic Empowerment project in the Philippines is one such example, which enables local community organisations to access seed funding for small business entrepreneurship.
The story of one woman’s experience shows just how important this work really is.
