Press For Progress
International Women's Day is March 8th—how will your organization celebrate?
International Women’s Day is a global day to celebrate the achievements of women and to continue making the call for gender parity. On March 8th, 2018, we’ll be celebrating with this year’s theme: #PressForProgress. With the results of the World Economic Forum’s most recent findings in The Global Gender Gap Report, we can no longer wait for progress to be made around us—each of us must take an active part in driving toward parity in our workplaces, communities, and beyond.
Our Press for Progress workshop will take a deep dive on the report findings and lead a solution ideation exercise to give participants concrete takeaways for how they can contribute to the press for gender parity in their organizations.
Participants in this workshop will:
- Understand the current state of the gender gap given findings from the 2017 World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report
- Identify correlations between worldwide research and more localized gender disparity challenges in the workplace
- Develop solutions to root causes of gender-based issues, using a collaborative solution-development method
- Synthesize concrete solutions and tactics for immediate implementation at work and in daily life to continue the Press for Progress in 2018 and beyond
