March 8 - 12 is International Women’s WeekInternational Women's Week is March 8-12

By Council Proclamation, March 8 - 12 is International Women’s Week in Chestermere. The City welcomes all community members to share in this event, celebrating the achievements of women.

This year's theme for International Women's Day is 'choose to challenge.'

A challenged world is an alert world. Individually, we're all responsible for our own thoughts and actions - all day, every day.

We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women's achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.

From challenge comes change, so let's all choose to challenge.

Raise your hand high to show you're in, and that you commit to choose to challenge and call out inequality. Be involved in the movement and share a picture of you choosing to challenge by raising your hand up high, and create awareness in your community by using the hashtag #choosetochallenge
