IWD 2021 campaign theme: #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 choose to seek out and celebrate women's achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world. From challenge comes change, so let's all choose to challenge.
we organised this International Women’s Day Virtual Event via ZOOM for Dentists to celebrate their amazing works most especially at this time of the covid-19 pandemic. We have invited 2 women to give a talk whom we know exude power and intelligence, empathy and generosity, inspiring and contributing in educating, enabling and empowering women and young girls.
OPTIONAL: Wear something purple and prepare 3 sentences on “My Childhood Heroine” and send it to Rowena Castillo Nicholls on firstname.lastname@example.org or if we’re friends in Facebook, send it on messenger. This will be read during the virtual event.
