The 8th of March is celebrated annually as International Women's Day. It is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. And this year's theme is 'Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow', calling on people to work towards a world that is equitable, inclusive, and free from bias and discrimination so the playing field is levelled for women moving forward.
I am lucky enough to be the daughter of an amazing and inspirational woman (pictured here) and to be born in Iceland - a country that has ranked the best country in the world for gender equality every year for over a decade. And still, there is a lot of work to be done to reach equality in my country, let alone around the world.
With women like you and me and my mum, we can choose to challenge and work towards a more equal world for everyone.
Are you celebrating today?
I am celebrating by giving one of my followers a 2-hour Women Empowerment session with me for free. Having travelled the world and worked with so many amazing women, one of the things that seem to keep us from feeling empowered and knowing our worth is belittling ourselves and our achievements, feeling like an imposter all the time. Let's work together to change that mindset. Reply to this email with some details about why you would like this session and I will pick a winner by the end of this week.
