International Women's Day

March 8th is International Women’s Day, which is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. This year’s theme is #ChooseToChallenge. We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.
