International Women's Day 2023

Learn more about International Women's Day (IWD), a yearly event to recognise and commemorate women's achievements around the world. 


Purple symbolizes ambition, power, and unwavering loyalty to a cause. As such, purple has come to represent the annual International Women's Day on 8 March every year. 

"Purple as everyone knows is the royal colour, it stands for the royal blood that flows in the veins of every suffragette, the instinct of freedom and dignity.”

⁠— Emmeline Pethick (1908), English activist

International Women’s Day (IWD) is an important annual event that celebrates the academic, political and social achievements of women around the world. This year, the theme for IWD 2023 is “Embrace Equity” – a call to action to encourage the empowerment of women.

The United Nations has declared IWD 2023 an opportunity to “recognize the progress made and to accelerate the global gender parity agenda.” On this day, we celebrate the progress that has been made in the fight for gender equality, while also recognizing the work that still needs to be done.

From the arts and sciences to business and politics, women have achieved remarkable feats and have broken through barriers to create real, lasting change.

At the same time, our society must also recognize the systemic barriers and inequalities that women face around the world. Not all women are liberated equally, and there is a long way for society to go in order to appropriately address every woman's needs.

As we celebrate International Women’s Day 2023, I'VRE commits to taking action and embracing equity, starting within our company. We are comprised of 75% women who strive to ensure inclusivity and equal opportunities for all in everything that we do.
