International Women’s Day (IWD) is a day to acknowledge and celebrate women’s cultural, social, and economic contributions but is also a call to action for women and their allies to take action to accelerate gender parity. IWD has been celebrated for 111 years and recognized but the UN since 1975.
2020 will mark the fifth annual Be Bold Now International Women’s Day celebration, March 5, 2020, at Benaroya Hall. The event is an evening celebration were we share women's stories to inspire the audience to take action to promote gender parity. The evening is anchored on the data from the World Economic Forum Gender gap report (WEF) to ground women and our allies in the work that needs to be done to close the current estimate of over 200 years for women to achieve parity.
We hope you will join us for the uplifting and inspiring evening. ASL Interpretation will be available at this presentation.
