International Women’s Day is on March 8th, 2024.  

This year’s campaign theme underscores the crucial role of inclusion in achieving gender equality.

It calls for action to break down barriers, challenge stereotypes, and create environments where all women are valued and respected.

Inspire Inclusion encourages everyone to recognize the unique perspectives and contributions of women from all walks of life, including those from marginalized communities.

At Avana, we’re committed to empowering women, girls, and non-binary individuals year-round. Through impactful partnerships with organizations like the Y.W.C.A. and Sofia House, we make a tangible daily difference. By 2030, we aim to positively impact over 100,000 lives, prioritizing resident experiences, advocating for social change, and tackling Canada’s housing challenges head-on. With your support, let’s continue championing inclusion together. Our efforts extend beyond International Women’s Day as we strive to make a lasting difference. Join us in our journey toward a more inclusive future.
