International Women’s Day is all about celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women and also accelerating women’s equality. We are all people. We are all free and equal in dignity and rights, regardless of gender, race, religion, ethnicity, and sexual orientation. We should all collectively forge an inclusive world where every human is given equal opportunity to strive and thrive.

The IWD 2021 campaign theme is…#ChooseToChallenge.

A challenged world is an alert world. Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day.

We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.

From challenge comes change, so let’s all choose to challenge.

Meet inspiring women at Agara — and how and why they choose to challenge

We at Agara are celebrating women who have broken barriers in the workplace and have carved a niche for themselves. We captured their insightful views on gender bias, women empowerment, and how they believe they can build a better tomorrow for the next generation of women trailblazers.

Let’s read how women at Agara raised their hands high to show their support and commit to #choosetochallenge.
