“This remarkable initiative underscores our commitment to promoting diversity, inclusivity, and equal opportunities for all. We encourage employers to take this opportunity to support their employees,” said Diana Wilde, co-founder of event organiser Aurora50.

“We hope thousands of people will sign within the 24-hour pledge window to show their support for gender equality in the workplace. We don’t just want to create a world record – we want thousands of people making the commitment and to take action. Please help us all to be the change,” added Wilde.
