Break the Bias
This year’s theme for Women’s History Month is Break the Bias. Women’s History Month is dedicated to honoring women, illuminating their current contributions to society, and celebrating the many important roles women have played throughout history. Break the Bias, not only this month but every day of every month.
Tuesday, March 8, 2022, is International Women’s Day
“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.”
Help create an inclusive world
Bias exists. Deliberate or unconscious, bias makes moving ahead difficult for a woman. When viewed through the lens of bias, success looks different for a woman than it does for a man. Having this knowledge, that bias exists, is only the beginning. Action to create a more diverse, equitable and inclusive world is needed to Break the Bias.
We encourage you to Break the Bias and help forge an inclusive world. To inspire, educate, and enlighten you, we’ve shared some amazing resources below.
