International Women's Day: Perspectives in Philanthropy

International Women’s Day is a global celebration of the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. This day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. The philanthropic sector is especially poised to take on this action.

The 2018 theme for International Women's Day is "press for progress."  This timely discussion addressed issues related to gender equality which is being fueled by movements like #MeToo and #TimesUp.
