International Day of the Girl Child

October 11, 2021 All day

International Day of the Girl Child is an annual and internationally recognized observance on October 11 that empowers girls and amplifies their voices.

Like its adult version, International Women’s Day, celebrated on March 8, International Day of the Girl Child acknowledges the importance, power, and potential of adolescent girls by encouraging the opening up of more opportunities for them.

At the same time, this day is designated to eliminate gender-based challenges that little girls face around the world, including child marriages, poor learning opportunities, violence, and discrimination. – click for more information, including the history of the event

3. The approach we ALL can take when advocating for our female co-workers, classmates, and family members

4. What workplaces can do to make a positive impact for their female employees
