International Women's Day 2019 (originally published 3/9/19)

Happy International Women’s Day on March 8, 2019! NBC News had a short piece about the history and purpose of the day here. You can also read in detail at https://www.internationalwomensday.com/. As the NBC article points out, the day is celebrated in different ways in different countries. Wendy Ross, Director of Diversity & Inclusion for the chapter went to China 1 week after International Women’s Day 2015. The day falls on a workday, women come to the office/factory and are paid for the day, but do not work. Instead, they are treated to flowers, special meals, chair massages, and other perks. Does your workplace offer a celebration? If so, we'd love to hear about it! Contact Wendy Ross, Director of Diversity & Inclusion at diversity@pmirochester.org

As a chapter, we are celebrating IWD 2019 by posting pictures of our volunteers on social media with the hastag #BalanceforBetter. Look our for us on PMI Rochester's LinkedIn, FaceBook, Twitter and Instagram accounts!
