It’s International Women’s Day!

It’s International Women’s Day! Here’s to equality for women worldwide. The city center is hosting a Lecture Series in our Council Chamber today with some of Provo’s most established business owners, academics, writers, philanthropists and some of our promising women of aviation and tech.

  1. Cool, cool.

    And does anybody know when Internal Men’s Day is coming up?

  2. Thanks for designing & then hosting a celebration of International Women’s Day here in Provo. As a longtime resident & women’s advocate, it’s good to see our Mayor & others give some attention to this critical issue in our own community, & across the world. I’ve labored for women’s rights & a better future over 50 years, but the struggle continues. There are still many gender problems to fix in society. As I foresee the future of my daughters & granddaughters, along with yours, they face many obstacles. So today join the celebration! Make girls’ potential better than past generations. Work to empower women in the U.S. & globally. Honor the women in your life. Commit to building a world of greater gender justice. Don’t naively believe the fantasy that women’s rights are now established & that they have everything they want or need. In 2014 the World Economic Forum predicted that it would take until 2095 to achieve global gender parity. Then one year later in 2015, they estimated that a slowdown in the already glacial pace of progress meant the gender gap wouldn’t close entirely until 2133.
    So sign the pledge for the following & take action:
    – help women and girls achieve their ambitions
    – challenge conscious and unconscious bias
    – call for gender-balanced leadership
    – value women and men’s contributions equally
    – create inclusive, flexible cultures

    This was such a great event! I really enjoyed the lecture series and was impressed with the variety and caliber of speakers. I hope you continue this every year and that we find ways to bring the men to the discussion as well. Thanks for your work (and your team’s work) on this event!
