Enabling people to positively change their world

Celebrating International Women's Day
across our global programs

This International Women’s Day we’re celebrating progress towards gender equality and pressing for vital changes that need to occur around the world.

Scope Global operates in more than 50 countries, and women make up more than 50% of our workforce. Today, we’re sharing stories and ideas from some of our personnel around the world. We’re reflecting on the power of education, strong women and supportive communities.

This International Women's Day I’m celebrating the sheer diversity of women in our business and communities who dare to have a go.
In Sri Lanka there is a long way to go before we reach gender equality. Women's participation in Parliament is 6% and only 33.4% women are economically active.
My Mum is living proof that meaningful change can come from ordinary actions
From a father’s perspective, men can play a role in empowering women by allowing their daughters to have the confidence to be anything they want to be.
In 2025, I hope to see the first Aboriginal Prime Minister resoundingly elected in Australia – a woman. Or put another way, space made for all voices at the boardroom table. And the gap closed. And total gender parity in pay.
My education gave me a sense of self-worth and the ability to cope and respond to challenges positively and constructively. I don't think I would be as brave or enduring without it.
By 2025, I hope to see zero incidence of government leaders trampling on the rights and dignity of women all over the world.
My life would be very different without my mother’s belief in education and belief that women can do as much as men.
In 2025 I hope we’re celebrating global leadership that reflects diverse cultural backgrounds and all forms of ability.
I cherish what has been achieved. At the same time, I believe there is lot more to be done to place women on par with men as equal citizens with equal rights.
The lives of men and women are interdependent. The benefits from women’s empowerment will go a long way towards improving the lives of men as well as women.
Nelson Mandela said - Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. Education has changed and shaped me into who I am today.
My mother influenced me greatly. She set such a great example by being passionate and energetic in life. My mother treated all her boys and girls equally.
Now, women and girls seize their dreams and realise their capabilities.
Men have the ability to play significant role in reducing barriers. They can be loud supporters of equal rights.
This year I am celebrating the continuous vocal fight for gender equality and I am renewing my pledge to help women and girls realise their aspirations in life.
Now we find women climbing coconut trees, driving tractors, being electricians and venturing into other the ‘male dominated’ platforms.
My dream for 2025 is that all women will have equal access and opportunities to participate and to make decisions which are important for social, economic and political life.
In 2025 I hope that women, regardless of their race, religion, beliefs or education, will be able to claim their rights entitled to them so they can reach their full potential and wellbeing.
My mother is the person who made me strong when I am started my career path, and she has supported me along every step of the way.
My Aunt wanted me to know that education is the most important foundation in life. No one can your education away from you. 
I am proud of the new community that I am seeing in Tonga where there are more opportunities to benefit women.
Men need to acknowledge the existing conscious, unconscious and systematic gender bias and discrimination that exists in the world.
I hope we’re not celebrating International Women’s Day in 2025 because there’s equality in the world.
When I work with women, I aim to bring out their innate, valuable qualities so that they are able to empower themselves.
