International Women’s Day isn’t just a day to celebrate the many social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women; it’s an opportunity to be a global problem solver for women around the world.
For centuries, engineers have played a foundational role in the design and deployment of the vital infrastructure systems that drive our cities and communities.

White Plains Hospital Releases Public Service Video and Encourages Parents to Start Conversations About Alcohol In Early Adolescence
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y, January 13, 2017 /3BL Media/— Nearly 200,000 teenagers across the country end up in hospital emergency rooms as a direct result of injury or accidents due to underage drinking, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Excessive drinking is responsible for more than 4,300 deaths among underage youth each year, they report.

Yet, nonprofits shouldn't turn their eyes off of fundraising. In fact, in recent years we've seen a shift in how and when individuals wish to give to causes they care about.
While researching potential partners has never been easier through the use of technology, there is still a fair amount of due diligence required to find the right partner match.

For both, choosing the right partner that is a good fit can be a challenging proposition.
