International Women’s Day 2019

Year-round, women in our community and the United Way network empower others and inspire change. Some create pathways to leadership in their companies, while others organize their neighbors to build stronger neighborhoods. No matter their contribution, all do so in the service of their community. Today, on International Women’s Day, we celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women and call for advancing gender parity around the world. Join us in celebrating these seven women and all who fight for a more fair, equal future!
