Here’s a handy list of events celebrating International Women’s Day (IWD) 2023 which are taking place in Blackburn with Darwen and adjacent areas both on IWD 2023 (Wednesday 8th March) and beyond.

The campaign theme for International Women’s Day 2023 is #EmbraceEquity. Here’s some useful information from the IWD website: –

“For International Women’s Day and beyond, let’s all fully #EmbraceEquity.

“Equity isn’t just a nice-to-have, it’s a must-have.

“A focus on gender equity needs to be part of every society’s DNA.

“And it’s critical to understand the difference between equity and equality.

“The aim of the IWD 2023 #EmbraceEquity campaign theme is to get the world talking about Why equal opportunities aren’t enough. People start from different places, so true inclusion and belonging require equitable action.”
