International Women’s Day 2022

On March 8, 2022, we celebrate International Women’s Day.

Today, we recognize and celebrate the successes, accomplishments, and stories of women around the world. With each achievement and milestone, we continue to build a better world and a brighter future that promotes equality and inclusivity.

2022’s theme, #BreakTheBias, seeks to challenge and break free from a world that still experiences gender division, stereotypes, discrimination, and so much more. These biases only force a divide between us—and we can all do better. By recognizing and rejecting these stereotypes, we set an example for future generations and continue the fight towards inclusiveness for all.

This year, the Teamsters Ontario Women’s Caucus (TOWC) marks an exciting 10th anniversary! As a fundamental part of the Teamsters Organization, TOWC has and continues to advocate for and dedicate itself towards women’s organizations, charities, and educational events. Our Local is proud to support their hard work and efforts over the last decade.

In the same spirit, our Local will confront the negative stereotypes and fight to break the biases that women still to face in the workplace today. Discrimination has no place amongst Teamsters members, and our Local strives to preserve a safe and healthy work environment for everyone.

After all, the prevailing gender biases in the world affects not just women. Equality is a goal we need to fight for and continue to build on for a more inclusive society. From a personal level to an international scope, breaking these biases is everybody’s responsibility.

Get involved and continue to challenge the biases that surround you!
