World Speech Day Women forms an integral component of World Speech Day. Inspired by the activities set in motion on International Women’s Day 2020, we strive to be an immanent part of global conversations and actions seeking to champion gender equality.
World Speech Day Women’s vision, like the other facets of World Speech Day, seeks to empower women with a space to share their thoughts and ideas for a better world. Primarily, we embrace this through the power of speech making or ‘using our voices as catalysts for change’. Of course, the value of the written word cannot be underestimated and is also encouraged.
Women who support and uplift one another, women who take charge of their own circumstances and destiny, women and men who can offer support, guidance, and direction should be heard!
WSD Women encourages men and women to collaborate and connect to promote gender equality and women’s empowerment. From featuring engaging dialogues, podcasts, and articles that are intended to motivate and inspire women; to the sharing of tools that address gender-based violence; and men who are taking a stand on toxic masculinity – we are constantly exploring new issues to feature.
It began when…
women across the globe heeded our call to pivot as a result of COVID-19 and demonstrate what we know to be the strength of women – adaptability and flexibility. They illustrated this by utilising this platform to inspire and empower other women in a time of uncertainty, despair, and turmoil by honing in on their wisdom, experience, insights, and expertise to offer value to others in this time.
The result – the World Speech Day Women #GenerationEquality Podcast Series!
In 2021, the second Podcast Series was launched. WSD Women has partnered with the International Women’s Federation of Commerce and Industry Singapore for the BRIM (Sustainability in Business, Relationships In Business, Image/Branding, and Mental Attitude) Podcast Series – in anticipation of the Global Women’s Trade Summit taking place in Singapore in September 2022. WSD Women supports the empowerment of women in business and the workforce as a pivotal part of advancing Gender Equality.
