International Women’s Day 2021
International Women’s Day 2021 went digital, with the event moving to an online platform. Whilst we couldn't bring women together in our usual way at the Scottish Parliament, this gave the SWC the opportunity to have more attendees than ever before!
This online interactive event took place on International Women's Day, Monday 8th March 2021, from 6pm – 8pm, chaired by Linda Fabiani MSP, Deputy Presiding Officer.
Attendees heard from a range of contributors and key speakers who discussed their experiences over 2020 and their hopes for what a post-COVID Scotland will look like for women. This was followed by an interactive question and answer session.
To commemorate the tireless and heroic efforts of our key workers, our chosen theme for IWD 2021 was 'Celebrating Women in Scotland', highlighting the amazing work done by women in all walks of life during COVID-19.
Below you will find a summary of each woman nominated to be included in our 'Celebrating Women in Scotland' brochure.
