Press For Progress in Charlotte NC

Charlotte NOW is involved in an annual event for International Women’s Day on Mar 8, Press For Progress. It is at the International House, 1817 Central Ave, Charlotte NC. Charlotte NOW is on the Charlotte International Women’s Day Committee, and told me about the upcoming event. The following is from the eventbrite listing.

You are invited to celebrate the history, contributions and achievements of women. Join us for an inspirational and motivational event to bring change to move women forward.

This year’s theme is Press for Progress! While we know that gender parity won’t happen overnight, the good news is that across the world women are making positive gains day by day. Plus, there’s a very strong and growing global movement of advocacy, activism and support. So we can’t be complacent. Now, more than ever, there’s a strong call-to-action to press forward and progress gender parity. A strong call to #PressforProgress. A strong call to motivate and unite friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive. Let’s all be tenacious in accelerating gender parity. Collectively, let’s all Press for Progress.
