In light of International Women’s Day, we are choosing to challenge everyone to take up 100 Actions for Equality in 2022.

The International Women’s Day (IWD) 2022 campaign theme is ‘Break the Bias’ – #BreakTheBias. At Equality Forward we believe that we need to move beyond bias and break the systemic barriers that hold women back at work.

Every workplace can tackle the invisible barriers to women’s advancement and men’s fulfilment at work. Building cultures of equality and equity is about creating an environment where all employees feel like they can be themselves at work because they know they will be valued for this.

To enable every employee to practice daily acts of inclusion, we have created 100 actions for equality which address the key challenges all individuals encounter at work because workplaces devalue difference.

Every employee can take up the challenge to practice all 100 actions and build a culture of care in their organisation. Collectively we can remove the barriers to advancement, inclusion and fulfilment at work by making equality and equity a daily practice.
