International Women’s Day #BeBoldForChange

Today is International Women’s Day (IWD) and the 2017 theme is Be Bold For Change.

The IWD website offers suggestions about how we can all Take Action to make the world a more inclusive, gender equal place.  My friends and I are hosting a gathering where we’ll enjoy coffee, conversation, collaboration, and celebration.  It will be a simple affair, designed so that already busy women can learn strategies to #beboldforchange.

You can be a part of this day, too.  Visit this resource link, invite a friend, and Take Action!  Be Bold!

To all the Bold Women out there, and to all the men that love them:  Thank You!
