GISK – International Women’s Day Celebration
Since 1911, International Women’s Day has represented a celebration of women’s achievements across social, economic, cultural, scientific, and political fields and strives to draw attention to the importance and progress of gender equality.
In its infancy, it was supported by over one million people, but today it’s a global phenomenon that’s commemorated by groups and organizations across the world. Each year we’re encouraged to think about International Women’s Day (IWD) in a different way, with one larger theme to the campaign.
This year the theme for IWD is 'Digit ALL: Innovation and technology for gender equality.' We’re being encouraged to understand the difference between equality and equity and encourage discussion about why equality alone isn’t enough.
Gajera International School - Katargam celebrated IWD with great zeal and it was attended by all the female staff members of our department including our Safai Soldiers - the peons.
The male staff members took up the responsibility of organizing the event and making it special for the women. They arranged for decorations, music, and refreshments for the occasion.
The event started with lamp lightning by our school Principal Mrs. Sonia Budhiraja and the foundation members of our organization who have been with us for more than two decades.
The event highlighted the importance of women in society and the need for gender equality. This was followed by a cultural program, which included dance performances, songs, and skits & entertaining games - all dedicated to women.
The male staff members also took the opportunity to express their gratitude to the female staff members for their hard work and dedication to the school. They presented each of them with a small token of appreciation through a personalized photo frame & a Book authored by Arun Tiwari and Sanjay Rawal.
The event concluded with a gracious Vote of thanks by our Hon. Principal Mrs. Sonia Budhiraja madam.
The event was a huge success, and it brought the male and female staff members together in celebration of Women’s Day. It also served as a reminder justifying that UN SDG 5 – Gender equality is a collective responsibility, and everyone should work towards creating a more inclusive and equal society for women.
