History & Tech: Celebrating International Women's Day with Hannah

💃🎉Hey Atlassian fam, It's Hind from Jaanga, and guess what? It's International Women's Day, and I'm here with some cool history and updates about it (I know, not the typical party vibe, but bear with me, ladies).

So, let's go back in time to IWD history:

  • 1910: Clara Zetkin, a women's rights advocate and leader of Germany’s Women’s Office, came up with the idea of a worldwide International Women’s Day.

  • 19 March 1911: Boom! The first-ever International Women’s Day kicks off, with more than a million people in Austria, Denmark, Germany, and Switzerland joining the celebration.

  • 1975: The United Nations jumps on the bandwagon, recognizing and officially celebrating International Women’s Day. They become the major sponsors, encouraging countries to acknowledge the outstanding contributions of ordinary women in their history.

  • International Men's Day: Yep, it exists! Celebrated on 19 November in over 80 countries, but not officially recognized by the UN. Equality vibes, anyone?

  • 1996: UN introduces official themes for International Women’s Day. The first theme was "Celebrating the Past, Planning for the Future." Each year since then, IWD rocks a fresh theme. Last year, it was #EmbraceEquity, and this year, it’s all about ‘Inspire Inclusion.’

Now, let's talk tech:

The AI Revolution: Hannah's Transformation

Today, Huawei shook things up by adding a touch of artificial intelligence (AI) to the #InspireInclusion vibe. And who's leading the charge? None other than Huawei's virtual anchor, Hannah.

In a world where tech innovation knows no bounds, Huawei jazzed up the IWD celebrations by giving Hannah an AI makeover. They're breaking new ground in championing diversity and inclusion, especially in the tech scene.

But this isn't just a glow-up; it's a powerful message Hannah carries: "Huawei virtual anchor HANAH wishes you a Happy International Women’s Day! Together, let’s forge a more inclusive world for women!”

With a mix of tech, charm and sci-fi, she's inviting everyone to join the #InspireInclusion movement. So, let’s ride the tech wave and celebrate the awesome women shaping our world! 🚀
