International Women’s Day – #BalanceforBetter

Tomorrow is International Women’s Day and Edinburgh City Korfball Club will be aiming to raise awareness of the #BalanceforBetter campaign which is helping to achieve a gender-balance in the workplace, in government and in communities all around the world.

Korfball is a gender-balanced sport, with men and women represented equally on-court and Edinburgh City are pleased that women are well represented at all levels.


Over the course of International Women’s Day we will be bringing you interviews with our President Katrina Caldwell, 1st team captain Emma Cottell, assistant coach Christie Smillie and committee member Lauren Kelly where they discuss their experiences of gender-balance, what lessons can be learnt and how we can all help to create a #BalanceforBetter.





The future is exciting. Let’s build a gender-balanced world.

Everyone has a part to play – all the time, everywhere.

From grassroots activism to worldwide action, we are entering an exciting period of history where the world expects balance. We notice its absence and celebrate its presence.

Balance drives a better working world. Let’s all help create a #BalanceforBetter.


Year long activity and collaboration

The 2019 #BalanceforBetter campaign runs all year long. It doesn’t end on International Women’s Day.

The campaign theme provides a unified direction to guide and galvanize continuous collective action, with #BalanceforBetter activity reinforced and amplified all year.


Let’s build a gender-balanced world

Balance is not a women’s issue, it’s a business issue. The race is on for the gender-balanced boardroom, a gender-balanced government, gender-balanced media coverage, a gender-balance of employees, more gender-balance in wealth, gender-balanced sports coverage …

Gender balance is essential for economies and communities to thrive.
