Women at Nike were fed up with sexual harassment and gender discrimination. They decided to do something about it with data. That data changed the narrative of the company forever. Here is what we learned, and what you should learn, too.
The Greater Pittsburgh chapter of the Women's Energy Network hosted members for a half day conference as part of their Leadership Series. As a group, we dove into the findings from the World Economic Forum's Global Gender Gap with the 2018 International Women's Day theme of "Press for Progress" in mind.
The women at this workshop came together from different industries to share stories, ideas, and data that will help their individual workplaces #PressForProgress when they returned.
We focused on the “why” behind the day: applauding all that we have accomplished as we move toward gender parity, and challenging our societies to do more and #PressforProgress.
International Women’s Day 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.
This day has been recognized since the early 1900s and gives humans everywhere the opportunity to focus on unity, celebration, and action. This year’s theme—Be Bold for Change—is a critical push to work towards purposeful collaboration. Collaboration that will challenge unconscious bias, encourage women and girls to go after the highest levels of their goals, and create a more inclusive culture for all.
