This International Women’s Day – take time to #EmbraceEquity

2nd March 2023
Chwarae Teg is asking organisations across Wales to actively #EmbraceEquity and have some fun fundraising this International Women’s Day (8 March).

The charity has developed resources to support organisations interested in fundraising in aid of its vital work in eradicating gender inequality in Wales.

A host of suggestions, from quizzes to teambuilding and sponsorship ideas can be found at

By signing up and joining in, workplaces will be able to plan inspirational get togethers involving staff and customers which will boost wellbeing and engagement by coming together to do good.

Some key facts to remember this International Women’s Day from Chwarae Teg’s State of the Nation report:

  • 5% of sexual offences are committed against Women.
  • 3% is the current gender pay gap in Wales.
  • 50% of women aged 16-34 have experienced at least one type of harassment in the last year.
  • 23% of women in Wales feel safe walking alone after dark.

For over 30 years Chwarae Teg has been campaigning for gender equality, working tirelessly to create a fairer Wales, where all women can achieve and prosper.

International Women’s Day is a chance to celebrate inspirational women and recognise the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. There are lots of different ways to do this and I hope organisations take a look at our resources and mark the day in a way that works for them and helps to support our work in future.

Collective activism is what drives change. Partnering with Chwarae Teg this International Women’s Day not only raises vital funds for us to continue fighting for a fairer Wales but also demonstrates partners commitments to creating inclusive environments where Women can achieve and prosper.

As well as being a great opportunity to socialise with colleagues or clients, organisations that get involved are really demonstrating their commitment to gender equality and can raise awareness of the important issues.
