March 8

Today is International Women’s Day.  The emphasis this year is around inclusion for all, including women.  Take a moment to celebrate and thank the women in your life who inspire you, help you, and support you.  While it may seem that women have equal rights and freedoms in our society, we still have a long way to go for what is known as gender parity in many workplaces and access to power in politics and business.  Do what you can to support equality and end discrimination for all, today and every day.
