International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day is a global celebration of the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also emphasises the necessity for equality for women and girls in the classroom, the workplace, and beyond.

The very first International Women’s Day gathering took place in 1911 and rallied the support of over a million people. The 8th of March is an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of women world-wide, raise awareness of the dangers of discrimination, and to emphasise the importance of gender parity.

Inspire Inclusion

International Women’s Day 2024 is centred around inspiring inclusion. This message strives to encourage others to understand
and value women’s equality and also for women themselves to be motivated to get involved, resulting in a sense of belonging and empowerment.
The aim of the IWD 2024 #InspireInclusion campaign is to collectively forge a more inclusive world for women.

Everyone everywhere can get involved

Everyone can take part in International Women’s Day and help to understand, value and encourage the inclusion of women and girls through the sharing of knowledge, support and encouragement.

There is an IWD activity for everyone, whether it’s attending an in-person event, putting on your own workshop, fundraising, donating, inspiring or making sure there is inclusion in your organisation. Join in and make IWD your day, doing what you can to support and encourage the women around you.

How will you inspire inclusion?

There are many ways organisations can help to ensure the needs, interests and aspirations of women and girls are included such as:

  • Recruiting, retaining and developing female talent.
  • Supporting women and girls into leadership, decision-making, business and STEM roles.
  • Providing women and girls with access to quality education and training.
  • Promoting the creative and artistic talent of women and girls.

Embracing tech in the classroom to improve equity

Providing technological equality and equity is rapidly becoming a high priority for schools as they strive to provide young people with not only a 21st century teaching and learning experience, but also the skills they need for life after school.

Incorporating Apple Technology in the classroom provides opportunities to all students, regardless of background or gender. Sync recognises the need for strong partnerships with schools and Multi Academy Trusts.  We acknowledge the importance of being more than just a provider of hardware, and instead being a trusted advisor to help schools navigate the adoption of technology for students, staff and parents.
