“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much” ~ Helen Keller 

Every year, March is designated as Women’s History Month. It is a time to honor women’s contributions in American history.  This is a great opportunity for companies to celebrate female employees at all levels as well.   

We recommend that celebrating women in the workplace is part of a broader strategy, celebrating all groups throughout the year.  

Here’s a list of ideas to recognize and celebrate women at your company: 

  • Organize a panel of female leaders at your organization to share stories of their career growth and tips for career advancement 
  • Develop a mentorship program in which female leaders mentor more junior level and aspiring female employees 
  • Send a company-wide email throughout the month of March showcasing women employees at all levels who are doing great work and making an impact 
  • Include in that email a list of TED talks by women. This playlist features 10 bold talks from female speakers  
  • Organize a paid volunteer day at a local women’s shelter, women’s health clinic, or organization that supports young girls in your community
