For International Women’s Day 2020, a group of digital diplomats came together to share a single message through a joint Twitter thread.
Building on past campaigns to mark International Human Rights Day 2019 and International Women’s Day 2019, 13 embassies in Washington, DC — @ItalyinUS, @SpainInTheUSA, @SwedeninUSA, @SwissEmbassyUSA, @ARGinUSA, @FinlandInUSA, @IsraelinUSA, @NLintheUSA, @franceintheus, @GermanyinUSA, @EmbamexEUA, @DenmarkinUSA, and @CanEmbUSA / @AmbCanEUA — together with the Digital Diplomacy Coalition (@digidiplomats), used their social media presence to bring attention to International Women’s Day 2020.
Working as a united diplomatic front, the group shared a single message divided among their accounts to highlight the importance of advancing a gender-equal and inclusive world, where all people are #EachForEqual and members of #GenerationEquality seeking to make a positive difference.
Like all digital conversations, we hope to see others share and join the thread, and take real world steps toward positive change.
#DiplomacyUnited is an informal community originating from the first international digital diplomacy conference held in Stockholm in 2014. The group has continued to collaborate over the years, and has also grown to include additional embassies and organizations.
