Today Facebook will celebrate International Women’s Day with a 24-hour around-the-world live broadcast, celebratory artwork that people may see in News Feed directing them to the experience, as well as many other ways to support the day.

Here’s the full blog post from Maxine Williams, global director of diversity at Facebook: Women everywhere give their all to build and support a global community that works for everyone. This is especially true when it comes to women who run businesses. We’re proud that 40 per cent of business Pages on Facebook are women-owned, a number that has increased 60 per cent from 2015 to 2016*.

When women do better, communities and economies do better. Hear more from Sheryl on the importance of the day to celebrate women’s progress and achievements.

 Facebook stands for bringing us closer together and aims to build, strengthen and empower a global community. We have several ways the community can show their solidarity through the many women-led and supported activities happening on Facebook Live, Pages, Groups, Events and Fundraisers.

#SheMeansBusiness 24-Hour Around-The-World Facebook Live Broadcast

Through #SheMeansBusiness, a program that Facebook launched last year to support, celebrate and empower women entrepreneurs and women-owned businesses, we will host a global Facebook Live event.

For 24 consecutive hours, policy makers, female business owners, entrepreneurs, NGOs and leaders around the world will use Facebook Live to share inspiration, impart knowledge and discuss topics of women in business. The first conversation will go live on March 7 at 7:30AM PST and go around the world for a full day.

Everyone can join and start their own conversation on Facebook to celebrate female leaders, entrepreneurs, industry role models or business owners. Use the #SheMeansBusiness hashtag in all Live conversations or posts that celebrate women in business.

As part of this celebration, Mia Freedman, cofounder and creative director of the Mamamia Women’s Network, will be hosting a Facebook Live video at 10am on Wednesday 8th March from Sydney. The celebration will conclude with a Live session with Facebook’s Chief Operating Office, Sheryl Sandberg, from San Francisco.

There’s also new research from Facebook on Australian women in business.
