Embracing Equity Across the Globe: International Women's Day 2023
International Women’s Day is an annual global celebration on March 8, uplifting the social, political, cultural and economic contributions of women in history, as well as a call to action to advocate for gender equity and equality.
The theme for 2023 is #EmbraceEquity. Embracing equity means facing the fact that playing field is not level for women, but making the choice to ensure that all women succeed by providing them with the right support and resources to thrive.
This year we are embracing equity by igniting the conversation and raising awareness of inequities faced by women, most highlighted by our B Unstoppable group.

If you caught up on The Invitation to the Table, written by our Chief Product Officer, Jodi McDermott, then you know Brightly is committed to diverse thought and inclusivity, starting with our leaders. In honor of the day, we initiated conversations in every geo in support of hearing women’s voices and encouraging them to take up space. Let us recap Brightly’s celebrations of women and change globally this International Women’s Day, led by B Unstoppable leader Hannah Winstanley. (Photographed above)

The goal of B-Unstoppable, Brightly’s Women’s Employee Resource Group, is to create a network of women across the globe who share experiences, offer advice and strategies, encourage one another to be courageous and celebrate each other’s success. With over 100 members, there are regional groups who meet monthly to listen and share a space for enrichment, well-being and a sense of belonging. Tackle challenges such as non-inclusive language, gaslighting, imposter syndrome and negotiating skills.
