Choose to Challenge

Posted On: Filed Under:

International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. Significant activity occurs worldwide as groups come together to celebrate women’s achievements or rally for women’s equality. Celebrated each year on March 8th, this year’s IWD 2021 campaign theme is “Choose To Challenge”. A challenged world is an alert world. And from challenge comes change.

Through our work at CNFA, we strive to support communities, businesses, and stakeholders to move forward. We see our role as that of a facilitator, creating enabling environments for economic and social change and challenging the status quo.

While we believe that every day is a celebration of our core values of equity and inclusivity, we hope to use March 8th as a celebration of women’s achievements and showcase our work that plays a vital role in creating an inclusive world. Included in the following pages, is a snapshot of our work through the voices of our global leaders highlighting our solutions-based approach towards an equitable world.
