"IWD is also a reminder that although we have come so far there is still a long way to go when it comes to achieving gender equality. I encourage my female colleagues to be bold, confident, vocal, to be the change they want to see and above everything to be themselves.”

For the last 100 years, International Women’s Day has been celebrated every year on the 8th of March by countries, organizations, educational institutions, women groups and the media. The day is set aside to celebrate girls and women all over the world and to honor those who have been at the forefront of the fight to help forge a gender equal world.

Branka stated further that “Women deserve an equal future free from stigma, violence and stereotypes with equal rights and opportunities for all to realize their full potential. To achieve this, women need to be at every table where decisions are being made in government, education, politics, business, fintech, telecoms, religion, entertainment and sports.

"Women’s full and active participation and leadership in all spheres of life drives real progress for everyone. At 9PSB, we ensure that everyone whether male or female is given equal opportunity and access to achieve their full capacity.”

International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

Significant activities are witnessed worldwide as groups come together to celebrate women's achievements or rally for women's equality. IWD has been marked for over a century, with the first gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people.
