International Women's Day 2022

International Women’s Day

The United Nations recognizes 8 March as International Women's Day. This International Women's Day, let's celebrate women entrepreneurs who are making trade greener for a more sustainable tomorrow.

    Overview

    ITC contributes to the International Women's Day celebrations by highlighting how women entrepreneurs from across the world overcome obstacles and participate successfully in international trade. It is a global day to celebrate women’s and girls’ achievements and to raise awareness of the efforts that still lie ahead to achieve gender equality.

    Strengthening women in business and trade in developing and least developed countries is one of the mainstays of the International Trade Centre’s work.

    Previous years

    Our 10-day social media campaign centred on Gender Equality for Sustainable Trade.

    Supporting women in sustainable trade helps mitigate climate change by making them - the underrepresented - more active in the global value chains. We celebrated women entrepreneurs who are at the forefront of bringing sustainable solutions to trade, and to our daily lives.
