Ways You Can Celebrate International Women's Day #IWD2016

International Women's Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. Visit www.internationalwomensday.com for more information on this global project.

Here are the 6 tenets for 2016:
  • Help women and girls achieve their ambitions
  • Challenge conscious and unconscious bias
  • Call for gender-based leadership
  • Value everyone's contributions equally
  • Create inclusive, flexible cultures
  • Further gender parity resources
I've chosen to help women and girls achieve their ambitions.
