The theme for IWD 2022 is #breakthebias: “Imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination. A world that's diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women's equality. Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias.”
AMAPCEO Women’s Caucus IWD Social Event
