#BreakTheBias: Andela and International Women's Day 2022

Imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. A world that’s diverse, equitable, and inclusive.

Andela is committed to building workplaces where women thrive, increasing visibility while calling out inequality. This International Women’s Day, we’re celebrating women who break boundaries, break the glass ceiling, and break the bias.
