Marking International Women’s Day 2021

At Noatum we give voice to the protagonists of March 8, International Women’s Day. Our goal this year has been to appeal to everyone’s responsibility in the important challenge of creating an equal world for all.

This 2021 we go further, we challenge ourselves, we communicate and even look each other in the eyes thanks to the #ChoosetoChallenge initiative, through which you can get to know in detail six women with inspiring stories that, from different parts of the world, tell us their experiences.

We have asked them questions related to the importance of being responsible of our thoughts, actions and choices, which help us to challenge ourselves and reach the ultimate goal: to create a more inclusive world.

Here you have the full video with the interviews we have held with them, where they show us that they have taken a step forward by getting involved with different entities in the interest of working for a more equitable world.
