International Women’s Day 2024

International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. Significant activity is witnessed worldwide as groups come together to celebrate women’s achievements or rally for women’s equality.

Inspire Inclusion

The theme for International Women’s Day 2024 is #InspireInclusion. By inspiring others to understand and value women’s inclusion, we help to create a more inclusive world for all. When women are inspired, there’s a greater sense of belonging, relevance and empowerment. We must challenge practices that discriminate against women, we must ask “why not?” When women are not included, we must call out when the treatment of women is inequitable, and we must do this each and every time.

Are you in? Inspire others to help forge an inclusive world by striking the pose and sharing your #InspireInclusion image across social media using #IWD2024 #InspireInclusion.

Celebrating IWD at CBU

Here at CBU, we are surrounded by the academic, social, political and personal achievements of inspiring women every day. Below, we’ve compiled just a few of these incredible stories to share with you.

We are so proud of all of the accomplishments made by our female students, faculty and staff. On behalf of Cape Breton University, Happy International Women’s Day!
