NSE partners UN to promote gender parity

"Individually, we're one drop but together we're an ocean".

"We know that gender parity won't happen overnight".

Commenting on the significance of IWD, Nicola Dibb, executive director and founder of Women in Social Housing (WISH) said: "Campaigns such as International Women's Day are hugely important for highlighting gender disparity and the very real struggles that many women face in the workplace". We are working closely with countries around the world to prevent and address sexual exploitation and abuse by staff in peacekeeping missions, and to support victims.

The Women of India Inc. survey showed that 69 percent employees of India Inc. feel that gender parity needs to be a top priority for their organisations; yet only 10 percent organisations have a robust gender diversity programme.

Equality for women is, in the long run, good for both men and women's advancement. History about IWD says it first emerged from the activities of labour movements at the turn of the 20th Century in North America and across Europe.

The beauty of International Women's Day lies in the fact that it is not limited to any particular group or any one cause.
