#BreakTheBias - Speakers for International Women's Day Events

Dhiyana Varsani
08 Feb. 2022

We want to live in a world of equality and justice. Gender inequality is injustice. Gender equality is a REAL solution.

There has been progress over the last decades: More girls are getting an education, fewer girls are forced into early marriage, there are more women serving in parliament and positions of leadership, and laws are being reformed to advance gender equality.

Yet, women still have access to fewer opportunities than men. They are consistently paid less than men worldwide, with the national gender pay gap currently at 14.2% (source: WGEA)

This year, the International Women's Day theme is #BreakTheBias and together we can achieve this.

Working together within our workplace, schools, and communities by being responsible for our own actions, thoughts, and beliefs we can #BreakTheBias

Gain access to some of our most influential minds

Saxton works with a number of speakers actively advocating for gender equality in all aspects of life. Our Saxton female speakers are shattering glass ceilings and making waves in industries ranging from engineering to politics

See below for some of Saxton's recommendations:

How will you #BreakTheBias ?

International Women’s Day is an important day of recognition, but we encourage you to incorporate what you learn about this day year-round. Here are some ways you can #BreakTheBias

  1. Inspire your team. Engage one of our speakers for your IWD event to inspire your team and raise awareness of the disparities between males and females.
  2. Celebrate women’s achievements. Whether it is someone you know personally or a public figure you admire, celebrate a woman’s accomplishments with encouraging words or supportive social media posts.
  3. Educate yourself. Read a book or watch a documentary about gender bias and inequality, and maybe even meet with friends virtually to discuss what you learned.
