International Women’s Day 2018

This International Women’s Day there is a strong call to action to #PressforProgress by encouraging family, friends, and colleagues to “think, act and be more gender inclusive.” Despite many achievements in women’s equality over the past 100 years, we must acknowledge the shortcomings and push for more progress for future generations. Powerful movements like #TimesUp and #MeToo have galvanized the world around us and as we celebrate the strength of women and girls of the world, past and present, of all shades, colors, and backgrounds, each of us must do our part to move the needle forward.

Every year organizations like the FWA, undertake, endeavors to celebrate International Women’s Day. This year, the FWA and OppenheimerFunds will host a 3rd annual event at the National Museum of Mathematics on Thursday, March 8, 2018. This event will bring together FWA members, mentees, and the general public for a historical presentation and a private tour of the museum.
