Smashing Barriers | Breaking and Building for Everyone
March 8 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm$10.00
The International Women’s Day 2022 theme, #BreakTheBias, captures the essence of what we embrace and work to emulate each and every day in our lives, work, and community.
When we come together in community, collaboration and partnership, collectively we can imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. A world that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women’s equality. Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias.
On March 8, London Small Business Centre, Women in Communications and Technology, TechAlliance of Southwestern Ontario, London Economic Development Corporation and the London Chamber of Commerce present Breaking and Building for Everyone. Gather virtually as a community, to share time and create space for change with Avery Francis, HR Specialist, leader in thoughts, words and actions, champion for women and all marginalized communities and Founder and CEO of Bloom. Converge in celebration of all who identify as women, as we talk strength and vulnerability, grit and balance, and unfold the collective experience of what the truth of work means and looks like for women.
Great strides have been made since the inception of International Women’s Day in 1909, but the work is just beginning. This day marks a moment to reflect on triumphs, celebrate the power, acknowledge the shortcomings and plan for strategies of change, as we revere women. The IWD 2022 theme, #BreakTheBias, captures what we embrace and work to emulate each and every day in our lives, work and community.
