With the evolution of our connected world, it seems harder than ever to maintain the fabled “work-life balance.” Carving out an uninterrupted span of time to commit to one obligation is nearly impossible as it grows progressively easier to stay in touch with others at all times.
In fact, a lot of workers have been deciding to ditch the idea of work-life balance altogether and instead prefer the new concept of a “work-life blend.”
International Women’s Day is celebrated annually on March 8 to honor the achievements of women throughout history and across nations, and to provide a global forum to women who want to create a better future for their communities, children and themselves. The theme of International Women’s Day changes each year as more progress is made and, of course, as new issues arise that have the potential to stand in the way of gender equality. This year, the theme is #EachforEqual, which underscores the concept that “an equal world is an enabled world,” and that gender equality is imperative for economies and communities to thrive.
