This year on March 8, companies and individuals from around the globe celebrate International Women´s Day to highlight the importance of #equality by sharing powerful statements about what they #ChooseToChallenge.

International Women´s Day, celebrated on March 8, is an exciting opportunity to discuss where we stand in terms of gender parity and equality and what we need to challenge moving forward as a company to achieve those goals.

This year, we will celebrate globally, and virtually, with events ranging from talks from external key note speakers, open virtual table discussions, poster sessions, and insights from many of our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs).

The Healthcare Diversity Advocates Board (DAB) is the official Diversity & Inclusion Board for the Healthcare Business at EMD Serono. Co-chaired by Amy Mahery and Eileen Martin, the DAB explores D&I opportunities, drives D&I strategy across Healthcare and provides input to the D&I Office and Diversity Council regarding challenges and best practices. The DAB meets monthly to work collaboratively on global D&I topics for all our employees around the globe.

We are proud to highlight the members of the DAB by sharing their powerful statements on what they #ChoosetoChallenge on this year´s International Women’s Day!

A challenged world is an alert world. Individually, we're all responsible for our own thoughts and actions - all day, every day.

From challenge comes change, so let's all #ChooseToChallenge
