International Women's Day

“The World Economic Forum predicts the gender gap won't close entirely until 2186. This is too long to wait.” International Women’s Day, 2017

Will you #BeBoldForChange?

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.

UON’s International Women’s Day on Wednesday 8 March is an opportunity for students and staff to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women at UON and around the world.
