A wise woman once said:
“Who run the world? Girls!” 💃 👯♀️😏
Happy International Women’s Day! Around the world, people are joining in honoring women and challenging the oppression they continue to face. This year’s theme is #EmbraceEquity! Imagine a gender-equal world with no bias, discrimination or stereotypes that foster diversity, equity and inclusion.
Supporting women every day is something we always do at fylí. By creating a Mastermind program to support female founders, we are committed to helping women flourish personally and professionally. The women in our tribe are hardworking, powerful and all-around inspiring. We would not have the opportunity to collaborate, learn and grow together if it wasn’t for the courageous women who first broke into the business realm and paved the way. The startup industry was originally dominated by men, but women have put on their entrepreneurial hats and have been crushing it 💪. Even though we are still forging for gender equality in entrepreneurship, we have a seat at the table.
So let’s celebrate! 🎊 Here are 5 ways you can celebrate International Women’s Day:
1. Attend an IWD event 😆
There are numerous in-person events, virtual events, marches and more that you can attend to celebrate IWD 🎉.
