These are uncertain times. We find our friends, our neighbors, and even ourselves asking the same question, "What's next?" Our answer is action. By coming together each day to focus on a single task, we can make our communities better for the women and girls who live in them.


Join us to create lasting change in #our100days

TODAY'S ACTION

According to the Center for American Progress, women hold almost 52 percent of jobs, but there are only 14.6 percent of executive officers and 4.6 percent of Fortune 500 CEOs. Despite the low numbers, we all know women leaders at the head of their companies and organizations, who are making lasting change in their communities.


On March 7th, Washington Business Journal and The Women's Foundation are shining a light on local women leaders in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. The Women Who Lead Event series brings together women from all stages of their careers to hear how they charted their own personal paths to success.


Share the Women Who Lead Event with your colleagues and share/tag/post women leaders in your community that you admire!  And remember to tag #our100days

We’re approaching a three-day weekend! Looking for something to do? Consider a visit to the Newseum! Two new exhibits explore important issues: “REFUGEE” depicts the lives of diverse populations dispersed and displaced throughout the world and includes stunning portraits of the new Americans, refugees recently settled in the United States. “Louder Than Words: Rock, Power and Politics” will showcase the intersection between rock and politics and examine how artists exercise their First Amendment rights, challenge assumptions and beliefs, stimulate thought and effect change.

What does it mean to be an ally? That’s a question that many people are increasingly asking themselves. According to the FBI, in 2015, over 5,800 bias-motivated crimes were reported across the country; 59 percent of those motivated by race/ethnicity/ancestry bias; 19.7 percent were motivated by religious bias; and 17.7 percent were motivated by sexual orientation bias. There are many resources available on how to be a good ally, and today we’re sharing one of them!


Watch this video by Franchesca Ramsey on How to be an Ally and share it with 3 people.
