International Women’s Day is Wed, Mar 8, 2023
The terms equity and equality sound similar, but the implementation of one versus the other can lead to dramatically different outcomes for marginalized people.
Equity recognizes that each person has different circumstances and allocates the exact resources and opportunities needed to reach an equal outcome.
Take a photo of yourself, alone or with a group of friends embracing equity with a self-hug. When you submit a photo, it will count for one chance in the KDLC’s International Women’s Day contest. One photo submission per person, please.
Please fill out and enjoy the Kamloops & District Labour Council’s Trivia Quiz. By filling out the trivia quiz, you will be entered into the contest one time. When you complete the quiz, it will count for one chance in the KDLC’s International Women’s Day contest.
