Did you know that March 8 is International Women’s Day?
International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. International Women's Day (https://www.internationalwomensday.com/) is all about unity, celebration, reflection, advocacy and action. The 2017 theme is beboldforchange . At Ciena, we are planning networking events around the globe to celebrate achievements and discuss how we can beboldforchange within Ciena and in our partner, customer and local communities. In the Denver office, we held a "Planting a Seed" event that gathered women in technology from organizations around the Denver metro area to share seeds of wisdom, engagement ideas for work and our community in hopes of spreading ideas and enabling networking. Our theme, smallbutmighty, highlighted that making a difference doesn't take a lot of people, just the commitment to make a difference.
How will you beboldforchange on International Women's day and beyond? Please share your activities and ideas!
