Celebration of International Women’s Day at UCLG Africa headquarters

On March 08, 2022, was held within UCLG Africa, an activity for the Celebration of International Women’s Day.

This event took place in an atmosphere of conviviality between colleagues present at the Headquarters of the General Secretariat, despite the absence of most of the staff on mission in Nairobi, Kenya for the East Africa Regional Caucus, which takes place on the 7th and 8th March 2022.

Group-photos were taken with the effigy of the one chosen by The United Nations to celebrate this day of March 08, 2022, which calls for stopping and eliminating all actions, thoughts or ideas of all kinds of discrimination against women.


The staff members participating in this activity had the occasion to speak their minds on the meaning they give to this day and how would they like it to be celebrated within the Organization?

For some, this day should be devoted to reflection, evaluation, assessment and Orientation. For others, this day is an opportunity for all women to recall the place they occupy in the process of human development being aware of the progress made in claiming their rights and the problems that they still have to solve.

Moreover, they have unanimously recognized that they are complementary to men and not their rivals, in order to build together, fair, prosperous and equitable communities.

It was at the end of his exchanges that symbolic gift packages were distributed to all the staff women to commemorate this day and share a closing snack at 12 :30 p.m. Rabat time.
