Like International Women’s Day, International Men’s Day 2023 aims to bring the themes and issues that impact men to the forefront of our minds. The 2023 theme for International Women’s Day was ‘Equity’, something women are still striving for in the workplace. For men, the tone is different, focusing on men’s mental health. Why?
