International Womens Day 2021

International Women's Day celebrates the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality. Significant activity is witnessed worldwide as groups come together to celebrate women's achievements or rally for women's equality. The theme for International Women's Day 2021 is #ChooseToChallenge.

A challenged world is an alert world and from challenge comes change. So we should all choose to challenge.

In celebration of International Women’s Day 2021 we asked some of the employees of Cushman & Wakefield Asia Pacific - How will you help forge a gender equal world? These are their answers.
