(Today’s post is a copy of our special newsletter. We blacked out half the newsletter to show what it’s like when you only get half the story.)
WILL IT BE A “DAY WITHOUT WOMEN” (I.E. HALF THE POPULATION)?
Dear Innovation Women,
Today is International Women’s Day. There will be celebrations AND protests. Themes such as “Be Bold For a Change” and campaigns like #HerVoiceIsMyVoice. Many women are gearing up for a strike (#ADayWithoutWomen) to demonstrate what the workplace and business world looks like without women.
This is a special day – one focused on gender parity. Our mission is gender parity at conferences and events. We want to see more women on stage at conferences and events because speaking out leads to so many important consequences for women. We were recently asked by the United Nation’s Academic Impact group to share why and how we do what we do. It’s part of a great series on how different initiatives relate to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
