Celebrating International Women’s Day

Today, and every day, we work to empower and transform the lives of women, girls, and their families right here in Northeastern Pennsylvania.

All across the globe, International Women’s Day aims to foster a world in which women experience equality, support, and inclusiveness.

To coincide with International Women’s Day, this week we are launching a series of webinars exploring regional challenges affecting women and girls today. We need YOU as we continue working to break down barriers that exist for women and girls across the region.


 

Join us on Thursday!

This Thursday, March 11, 2021, please join us for our first webinar in a series exploring regional challenges affecting women and girls in Northeastern Pennsylvania today.

This webinar will take a local look at the state of civic engagement and advocacy for women in our community.
