#EmbraceEquity Booth

The 2023 theme for International Women's Day is Embracing Equity. We invite you to join our photo booth sponsored by Student Dietetics Association (SDA) on January 30th and 31st to share your #EmbraceEquity image, video, resources, presentation, and articles across social media using #IWD2023 #EmbraceEquity to encourage others to help forge an inclusive world.

"We can all truly embrace equity.

It's not just something we say. It's not just something we write about.

It's something we need to think about, know, and embrace.

It's what we believe in, unconditionally. Equity means creating a fair and equal world."
