In honor of women around the globe who are lifting up themselves and their families through their own hard work and creativity, happy International Women’s Day! Today Whole Planet Foundation celebrates the achievements of microentrepreneurs like Rupa who are using their voice and their personal power to change their own lives through microbusinesses they lead.
Ask me about balance when my daughter forgets her PE clothes, our basement floods, one dog is sick, my husband is juggling seven active litigation cases and I’m on a busy work trip 1,400 miles away. Better yet, don’t ask. Fortunately, days when everything goes awry are rare, so I just do my best at staying agile and taking it one day at a time.
Chelsey Cole, Charity Relations Specialist at Benevity, describes why we all need a day to celebrate women
Today is International Women’s Day and some of you may be asking yourself questions like “What can I do to get involved?” “Why do we need this and why is it being talked about?” “Is it a celebration or is it a somber occasion?”
Benevity CEO Bryan de Lottinville shares his motivation behind contributing $100,000 of personal funds in double donation matching for women's causes
There is a lot going on these days to pay attention to, and not all of it is positive. But on this day in the last couple of years, I’ve tried to be intentional about recognizing the importance of International Women’s Day, both at our company and in the broader community.
How companies are advancing gender equality through purpose-driven cultures
Gender equality is front and center in the public conversation as never before, and people are looking for ways to get involved and make a difference with more urgency and action. When we look at data from the hundreds of Fortune 1000 companies that use Benevity’s platform, volunteering time for women’s causes is growing at twice the rate of overall active volunteerism. On International Women’s Day itself, we saw donation activity double from 2016 to 2017, and donations to causes dedicated to women’s issues grew by nearly 12 times.
I’d like to believe that future editions of history books will herald each International Women’s Day as an increasingly powerful and impactful day of change. I hope that, each year, the day yields an idea, a hashtag or a movement of historical and monumental proportions. I hope that, each year, the day is one we’ll never forget.
