Life at Deloitte

International Women’s Day 2017

#BeBoldForChange

For International Women's Day 2017, the call to action is #BeBoldForChange - to call on the masses or call on yourself to help forge a better working world - a more inclusive, gender equal world. Each one of us can be a leader within our own spheres of influence. We asked several of our people to give us their take on working towards life goals and what being bold means to them.

Join our celebration by tweeting, posting, or otherwise sharing what gender equality means to you using the hashtags #BeBoldForChange #IWD2017.

The main lesson is that in life you will always face obstacles. It’s the way that you deal with them that will make all the difference.

Never give up on your dreams. As they say: “If you can’t stop thinking about it, don’t stop working for it.

International Women’s Day (IWD) is a day dedicated by the UN to celebrate women; IWD has been celebrated on March 8 in the US since 1909 and Internationally since 1911. Globally, we have come a long way since the early 1900s, but there is still more to do.
