What is IWD? What has it to do with business?

Well, International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. Now marked annually on March 8 but the first such day was held on 19 March as far back as 1911 in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland.

Social and political events of the time meant that the idea grew and in 1975 was observed by the United Nations for the first time, countries around the world also observe it as a national holiday.

Women form part of the workplace either as employee’s or employers. They may be, or aspire to be, business leaders or entrepreneurs.  Perhaps you are considering them when marketing to consumers too!
