This March we will join organizations and individuals around the world in celebrating International Women’s Day. This year the International Women’s Day campaign theme is #BalanceForBetter, which challenges our global community to strive towards gender balanced boardrooms, governments, media coverage, employment practices, wealth, sports coverage and more.
2019 International Women’s Day Forum: #BalanceForBetter
Wednesday, March 6, 2019 | 5:30-7:30PM
We were reminded recently through Worcester Business Journal‘s March 2018 “Boardroom Gap” series that Worcester has a long way to go towards creating more gender-balanced businesses and boardrooms. Join us before International Women’s Day as we examine the gender gap in business, discuss ways we can address gender inequity in our community, and develop strategies for how we can create #BalanceForBetter.
