Driving Positive Change in Education: Celebrating Women's Achievements on International Women's Day

In a world striving for gender equality, where inclusivity is championed and diversity is celebrated, International Women's Day (IWD) drives hope and a call to action. This year, as we gear up to celebrate #IWD2024, Pupil Progress proudly joins the global movement to #InspireInclusion in education and beyond.

At Pupil Progress, we recognise the invaluable contributions of women across the education and EdTech sectors. From educators and administrators to innovators and leaders, women are driving positive change, reshaping the landscape of education, and shaping futures.

In this blog post, we shine a spotlight on these remarkable women, celebrating their achievements and highlighting their impact on the journey towards gender equality.

International Women's Day is not just a day; it's a global movement that transcends borders, cultures, and organizations. It's a day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women while also acknowledging the work that still needs to be done to accelerate women's equality. As we reflect on the progress made over the past century, we also recommit ourselves to the ongoing fight for gender parity.

"Belonging, at its core, encompasses the need to connect, to feel valued, and part of a community. At E-ACT, we live and breathe the sense of belonging through our people first culture."

Karen Rose, Director of Partnerships and Organisational Development at E-ACT Trusts

Gloria Steinem, a prominent feminist, journalist, and activist, once said,

"The story of women's struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organisation but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights."

This sentiment encapsulates the essence of International Women's Day. It's about collective action, shared ownership, and solidarity in the pursuit of a more equitable world.

As we approach #IWD2024, Pupil Progress invites you to join us in #InspireInclusion. Whether you're organising events, raising awareness, or taking concrete actions to drive gender parity, your efforts matter. International Women's Day belongs to everyone, everywhere, and every action, no matter how small, contributes to the larger goal of creating a gender equal world.

In addition to celebrating women's achievements, International Women's Day also serves as a platform to raise awareness about discrimination and advocate for change. Through zero cost initiatives like the IWD Toolkit and Pupil Progress Resources, we can empower others, amplify our impact and catalyse meaningful change.

As we countdown to March 8th, let's harness the power of collective action and solidarity to drive positive change in education and beyond. Together, we can #InspireInclusion, celebrate women's achievements, and pave the way for a brighter, more equitable future.
