International Women’s Day – “Let’s All Choose to Challenge”
March 4, 2021
International Women’s Day happens on March 8th and this year’s theme is Let’s All Choose to Challenge.
We can choose to challenge (and call out!) gender bias and inequality. We can choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements. Raise your hand high to show that you commit to choose to challenge and call out inequality. #ChooseToChallenge and #IWD2021
Hands up high to show you are in! Strike the pose (of you taking the pledge), snap a pic and download it to this dropbox by March 4th. And please, for my sanity’s sake, when you download your image please rename the file YOUR NAME – as in “annasilva.jpg”. Please and thank you.
WISTA USA is going to put all the images together in a (and I’m dating myself here) “Hollywood Squares” style – or your typical Zoom meeting- collage and submit one great big beautiful maritime masterpiece. We will also be posting on our social media outlets.
All WISTA members are encouraged to post on your own social media outlets, get your companies, organizations and families involved and “share” and “like” all over the place! #WISTA #WomenInShipping #WomenWhoMoveTheWorld #ChooseToChallenge #IWD2021
And make sure you look like you are taking a pledge vs waving like a crazy person. Remember, the deadline for submissions is 11pm on Thursday March 4th.
