March 8 also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. Significant activity is witnessed worldwide as groups come together to celebrate women’s achievements or rally for women’s equality.
At Selkirk College, inspiring women in every school and every department are contributing immensely to the institution’s vision of building confident and imaginative learners ready to thrive in our communities and dynamic world. On March 8, we brought together people from our entire campus community to honour this day.
This year’s theme was #ChooseToChallenge: A challenged world is an alert world. Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions - all day, every day. We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.
