Women’s History Month takes place every March to celebrate the strength, tenacity, and resilience of women around the world. It’s also a month to recognize contributions women have made to contemporary society throughout history. This month, we’ll give all women of different backgrounds, sexual orientations, and abilities the credit they deserve while also addressing the obstacles that still lie ahead for women in society.
Use this Meeting in a Box as a tool to continue your employees’ cultural competence education, open conversations about identity and gender equality, and spotlight women’s accomplishments.
