Happy International Women’s Day!
At the Globe Women’s Collective, we believe every day is a good day to celebrate women’s accomplishments and examine the challenges that equity-seeking groups face in the workplace.
To commemorate International Women’s Day, we’ve collected some of our favourite stories from the past year highlighting women we admire, leaders we can learn from and individuals doing interesting things to propel their careers, their communities and their industries forward. We invite you to take a look.
Our Ask Women and Work series will return next week. E-mail us your questions at GWC@globeandmail.com.
