#BalanceforBetter – International Women's Day 2019

On March 8, 2019 people all around the world will celebrate International Women’s Day and its 2019 theme: #BalanceforBetter. At it’s core, International Women’s Day (IWD) is a celebration of women– where we have been and what we have achieved socially, economically, politically, and culturally. However, in addition to celebrating how far we have come, IWD also calls us to look at how far we have yet to go on the path to gender parity, and what actions must we all take as individuals to increase the pace of progress?

Case Study: Women's Energy Network

The Greater Pittsburgh chapter of the Women's Energy Network hosted members for a half day conference as part of their Leadership Series.

International Women’s Day: Who Should Celebrate?

International Women’s Day is not just a day for women, nor should it be. We need all genders rallying together to support one another, and for that enthusiasm to continue well beyond one day in March. This is the only way that we will drive true change and Press for Progress as this year’s International Women's Day theme demands.

International Women’s Day: How to Celebrate

If we acknowledge the fact that it will take 217 years to reach gender parity, we know that one day of commemoration won’t expedite the process—but International Women’s Day is more than just one day. It is a moment to look back at the progress we have made and be proud of that, then it is time to get to work.

Be Bold for Change

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.
