Celebrating Those Who Inspire Us at Medavie

How they’re “Breaking the Bias”

International Women’s Day (IWD) is a month-long event at Medavie as we join together to celebrate women’s achievements, raise awareness about bias and advance equality.

The global theme of this year’s IWD is “break the bias”, inviting us to call out bias when we see it, challenge stereotypes, break inequality and reject discrimination. It is in this spirit that we invited four women who inspire us at Medavie to share how they “break the bias” and to strike the IWD 2022 pose in support of an inclusive world.

“There are no limits to women and girls in science, technology, engineering and mathematics; there are only limits to those who don’t believe. I believe that I can ‘break the bias’.”
