March 8 marks an exciting day for women and allies across the world—International Women’s Day (IWD). Adopted in 1975 by the United Nations, this annual celebration recognizes women around the globe, their successes and accomplishments, and the bright future lying ahead.
Established in America in 1909, IWD now symbolizes a broad, encompassing movement as it’s celebrated by women and allies on every point on the political spectrum.
This year, as more women took office this January than ever before, you might have already seen celebrations taking place. Female lawmakers on both sides of the aisle wore white to the 2019 State of the Union to symbolize their record-breaking numbers and to promote a message of solidarity.
Founded in 2015, the DISH Women’s Network (DWN) was created to provide women at DISH an environment to foster relationships and professional growth through networking, education and career development. Our goal is to empower women to become leaders and create an inclusive work environment.
If you’re interested in joining the DWN, or simply want to learn more, today is a great day to do so—please feel free to visit us online at dishwomensnetwork.com, find us on Instagram and LinkedIn, or reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you have a great IWD!
