#InspireInclusion: Celebrating International Women’s Day 2024

March 7, 2024

March 8 is International Women's Day (IWD), an annual global celebration with origins dating back to the early 20th century. Each year, International Women's Day focuses on a specific theme, addressing issues such as gender-based violence, women's economic empowerment, equal access to education and healthcare and women's representation in leadership roles. 

This year, Purolator’s theme is Inspire Inclusion, which celebrates the diverse identities that women hold. It is an opportunity to honour women’s achievements and inspire future generations to pursue gender equity. 

We’ve compiled a video spotlighting three remarkable women at Purolator — Anne Marie Rickards, Zareen Khan and Ana Araujo — who have shared heartfelt letters to their younger selves. They reflect on their achievements, the challenges they've overcome and the journeys that have led them to where they are today. 

Through their stories, we're reminded of the importance of inclusion, empowerment and supporting one another on the path to success. 

As we celebrate the achievements of women worldwide this International Women’s Day, let's continue to #InspireInclusion in every aspect of our lives.
