Happy International Women’s Day (IWD)! I am thrilled to announce that starting tomorrow we’ll be publishing a special daily blog series. Each day we will be shining a spotlight on an amazing female member in our community in response to the program we launched in honor of IWD earlier this month. We are sure you will find their stories to be as inspiring as we did.
If you missed the deadline for sending in your nomination, don’t panic. Learning about our female members has been such a fun experience that we are extending the deadline! So hurry up and get your nominations in so we have more member stories to share with you this month.
In the spirit of what IWD represents, a day to uphold women’s achievements, recognize challenges, and focus greater attention on women’s rights and gender equality, here are a few of my top picks for the events honoring the day:
- UN Secretary-General’s Message for International Women’s Day 2015
- YouTube Launches #DearMe Campaign For International Women’s Day
- A conversation with Emma Watson live on Facebook about He For She and Gender Equality.
Know of other great events taking place in your country or city? Share it with us on the forums as we’d love to hear about it.
Looking forward to seeing your wonderful nominations!
