International Women’s Day is annually recognized on March 8 to celebrate women’s social, economic, cultural, and political achievements. On this day, there is a worldwide acknowledgment of achievements by women and an emphasis on how women can be empowered. In the US, March has designated as Women’s History Month to honor the impact of history’s women around the globe.
The members of DCAT’s Alliance for Industry Women Committee have observed that companies acknowledge and celebrate these events in very different ways. In the spirit of sharing, we have taken this opportunity to collect and share ideas and past activities DCAT Member Companies have implemented for this important day/month, along with practical resources that you can implement within your own company. Thank you to all of the companies that shared ideas for recognizing the important contributions of women.
The DCAT Alliance for Industry Women Committee is pleased to present DCAT’s Member Companies with this Celebration Toolkit for International Women’s Day/Women’s History Month. We hope the ideas and resources listed inspire you to get your own company’s celebration started!
