This year’s theme, “Women in the Changing World of Work: Planet 50-50 by 2030” draws attention to the very real and very troubling trends of gender inequality, pay gaps and pressure to reduce or impede women’s rights around the world.
I worry about the world my daughter will find around her as she grows. My hope is in people on large and small scales making changes to reverse these trends and to realize true equality. And, my opportunity is to effect these changes in the areas I can influence. Most importantly with the people in my life and my daughter in particular.
A day is not enough but the awareness highlighted on this one day will hopefully, and willfully, radiate forward. I celebrate the women in my life and treasure the impacts you have on me, my family and the lives we lead. Thank you.
