International Women's Day

8 March

Each year WorldSkills, its Members and Global Partners mark 8 March as International Women's Day.

Reinforcing our position that skills have no gender, we celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day is also a call to action to improve gender parity and ensure the accessibility of opportunities for women.

We still passionately believe that young women and young men must have the same opportunities in, and the same access to, vocational education and apprenticeships, wherever they live. When they enter the workforce women they should be paid the same amount as their male peers. They should also receive the same opportunities for promotion.
