GARMISCH-PARTENKIRCHEN, Germany (March 8, 2016) - Today is International Women’s Day.

Worldwide, women continue to contribute to social, economic, cultural and political achievement, and one of the places where it is most evident is in our staff, faculty, alumni, participants and guest speakers.

So how are you celebrating International Women's Day 2016?

This year’s #InternationalWomensDay theme is #PledgeForParity.

Everyone - men and women - can pledge to take a concrete step to help achieve gender parity more quickly - whether to help women and girls achieve their ambitions, call for gender-balanced leadership, respect and value difference, develop more inclusive and flexible cultures or root out workplace bias.

Each of us can be a leader within our own spheres of influence and commit to take pragmatic action to accelerate gender parity.
