World Bank President, Jim Kim Speaks Out For Women on #IWD2017



 Read as he shared on his LInkedin account:
Happy International Women's Day! Today and every day, we discuss progress, address challenges, and celebrate successes in the effort to achieve gender equality. No country, organization, or economy can meet the challenges of the 21st century without the full and equal participation of men and women.
We’re making progress, but we need to move faster and be bolder. The World Economic Forum's most recent measurement on the global gender gap found the progress toward economic equality peaked in 2013 and is slowing. If this trend continues, it would take 170 years to end economic disparity. That’s too long. We have to take action. It’s time to #BeBoldForChange.
