How to invest in the women of tomorrow 

What is the theme of International Women’s Day 2019?

International Women’s Day 2019 is on Friday, 8th March, and the theme of the day is ‘Balance for Better’.

That means striving towards a fairer, more gender-balanced world, where women can access every opportunity available to men.

But it also means striving towards a more gender-balanced workforce — from boardrooms to governments, newsrooms to classrooms. 

Because when these places are more diverse and balanced, we know that businesses, communities and whole economies can thrive
