“Gender equality is imperative for a successful and thriving economy. As a city we have been making steady progress towards this, and we should pause this International Women’s Day to celebrate and acknowledge the amazing women who have been making Bristol a better place to live through their work in construction and planning, care, education, tech, culture and so many more.

“We also have to acknowledge that COVID has had a disproportionate impact on women. This year’s International Women’s Day theme is Choose to Challenge, and we should collectively use this time to be more bold and innovative with our way of thinking when it comes to equality. This will only work if we all join forces together across public and private sectors, and the Economy Board currently provides a great converging point for ideas on how we can create a more inclusive economy in the city.”

Dr. Zara Nanu, CEO of Gapsquare.

Zara is a powerful advocate for workplace gender equality and wider fair pay. Starting her career combating human trafficking and campaigning on women’s rights issues, Zara is now at the forefront of the push for technology to build more inclusive workplaces.

 

International Women’s Day 2021 campaign

In recognition of International Women’s Day on Monday 8 March 2021, Bristol Women’s Commission (BWC) has teamed up with Bristol One City on their latest campaign; to share the progress that has been made for women and girls in their area of work over the last 8 years.

We invite our local businesses and organisations to film a short video answering what progress has been made, how this has been achieved and what work is currently taking place across Bristol to help women and girls.

Share your video on your organisation’s social media channels on International Women’s Day, including the hashtags #BristolWomen and #IWD21, and tag @BWCommission and @BristolOneCity on Twitter and Instagram, for them to appear alongside messages from city leaders on BWC’s and One City’s social media channels.
