Prime Employers for Women

Where Women Work makes all the difference

International Women's Day (IWD) provides a key moment to celebrate women's achievements in the workplace and showcase employer initiatives and support. As the biggest employee engagement day of the year, IWD sees organizations amplify and reinforce their commitment to helping forge an inclusive world.

While International Women's Day activity escalates for March 8, prime employers for women maintain a deep and continuous focus on equity, diversity and inclusion all year round. Increasingly, organizations worldwide are providing progressive policies, practices, benefits, and support mechanisms so women's careers can thrive - and these workplaces offer appealing job opportunities. Plus, celebrating the work and achievements of women inspires further women to achieve their full potential.
