As we mark International Women's Day at the start of a new decade, we unite globally to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women in our societies.
This year’s theme is Each for Equal. An equal world is an enabled world and we must each actively challenge stereotypes, fight bias and broaden perceptions to drive tangible progress. Each of us can and must make a valuable contribution every day in the continuing global campaign to forge a world that’s truly gender equal and inclusive.
But as we observe and celebrate how far we’ve come and what we've accomplished, let's also take time to sincerely reflect on the ground-breaking journey that lies ahead, setting our sights on how much farther we must travel to achieve absolute gender parity in our world. Gender equality is not a women's issue – it's essential to a fair and functioning society whose economies and communities will thrive. A gender equal world is healthier, wealthier and more harmonious.
I am proud to note that International Women’s Day is an event we place firmly in the spotlight each year across KPMG’s global network and 2020 is no exception as we unite to celebrate under one global theme, the #futureisinclusive. We continue building excitement and momentum for one of KPMG’s most successful company-wide programs, engaging and inspiring our people to continue the quest to empower lasting, positive change.
