Join Action Design Boston and Education First for a reception and panel discussion for International Women's Day.
Under the 2019 theme of Balance for Better, this year’s IWD panel features local representatives from organizations whose research and programming is aimed at reducing inequality and removing systemic social and economic barriers for advancement.
From grassroots activism to worldwide action, we are entering an exciting period of history where the world expects balance. We notice its absence and celebrate its presence. Balance drives a better working world. Let's all help #BalanceforBetter.
