Every year on 8 March, thousands of events are held throughout the world to inspire women and girls, celebrate women's achievements and shine a spotlight on gender inequality.

Share what you are doing to celebrate IWD in your school

Get involved with the NEU’s Remote Education Hub and tell us what you are doing to celebrate IWD.

There are lots of NEU tools, resources and advice you can use to promote gender equality for staff and students for IWD and beyond:

You can also check out the organisations Lifting Limits and the Gender Action Schools Award supporting schools to promote gender equality through a whole school approach.

You can also email equality@neu.org.uk  

Join our Women’s Networks

The NEU Women’s Organising Forum is a group of elected representatives that work together to make the world a better place for all and to improve the experience for women working in education.

Local women’s networks exist to provide women with advice, support and information on dealing with issues in the workplace. It’s a great way to share ideas and stay informed about what is going on in your district and/or branch. If you are interested in joining or starting a local network for women in your area, please email women@neu.org.uk
