On International Women's Day, lets make a pledge to keep diversity alive all year round

 Be bold for change is the campaign theme this year for International Women's Day, so as we take part in the various IWD events today, let's make a bold pledge to keep the spotlight on diversity and inclusion all year round beyond the annual celebrations.

March is always a busy month on the diversity calendar! Between International Women’s Day (IWD) and Harmony Day most of the month is taken up with celebrating gender diversity and then cultural diversity.

Sustain your diversity strategy all year round

March was a very busy month for diversity and inclusion.  Many organisations celebrated International Women’s Day (IWD) and then Harmony Day.  Now in April larger organisations ( 100+ employees) have shifted their focus to finalising Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) annual reports and Employer of Choice for Gender Equality citation applications. 

If March was D&I party season, April is reporting season!  In my experience, once the final reports are filed diversity fatigue kicks in and by mid April we usually see a lull in diversity & inclusion activity in most organisations. This is why it's critical to have in place a highly effective diversity strategy and change plan to keep your diversity momentum going 365 days of the year.

Collectively we can accelerate the pace of change by making the five pledge actions come to life.
