Activate Learning celebrate International Women’s Day 2024 – a focus on inspiring inclusion

Activate Learning celebrates International Women's Day 2023

International Women’s Day (IWD) stands as a global celebration of women’s social, economic, cultural, and political achievements. Annually, this day serves as a potent reminder of the strides taken toward gender equality while underscoring the ongoing work required.

In 2024, the campaign theme “Inspire Inclusion” places a spotlight on the significance of diversity and empowerment across all facets of society.

To champion inclusion means to commemorate diversity and empowerment not only on International Women’s Day 2024 but everyday.

This year’s campaign theme underscores the pivotal role of inclusion in the pursuit of gender equality. It calls for concerted efforts to dismantle barriers, challenge stereotypes, and cultivate environments where all women are valued and respected. “Inspire Inclusion” urges everyone to acknowledge the unique perspectives and contributions of women from all walks of life.

When we elevate female voices and achievement, we ensure more inclusive outcomes and better representation.

Here are some of the ways we empower and celebrate female students and staff across Activate Learning:
