IWD: ESHI 2nd International Women's Day Seminar

24 Feb, 2020

The Seminar will run from 9:30am to 12:30pm in Room GW 402, 4th Floor, ESHI, Greenway Hub.

The theme of this day is: 'An equal world is an enabled world'

An equal world is an enabled world. Individually, we're all responsible for our own thoughts and actions - all day, every day. We can actively choose to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women's achievements. Collectively, each one of us can help create a gender equal world.

Let's all be #EachforEqual.
