Lord Mayor of Dublin at Griffith College City Centre

Griffith College City Centre celebrates International Women's Day 2020. 

An equal world is an enabled world.  Individually, we're all responsible for our own thoughts and actions - all day, every day.

We can actively choose to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women's achievements.

Collectively, each one of us can help create a gender-equal world.

Let's all be #EachforEqual.

Three dynamic speakers shared their vision for creating a more equal and interesting world in a mini-seminar format. The Lord Mayor of Dublin, Councillor Tom Brabazon, opened this event. 

The Lord Mayor said of the event: “I am delighted to present the opening address at Griffith College City Centre’s celebration of International Women’s Day. In keeping with the theme for 2020 #EachforEqual, professional qualifications are key to creating a balanced workplace and a gender-equal world."
