Celebrate Women's History Month with WiM!

Posted By: Nicole Isenberg Blog ,
In honor of International Women's Day, WiM and Kia America have partnered to celebrate women in manufacturing during this week!
Read on to learn what this celebration is about and how you and your organization can join in with WiM!

International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. Significant activity is witnessed worldwide as groups come together to celebrate women's achievements or rally for women's equality. 

Marked annually on March 8th, International Women's Day (IWD) is one of the most important days of the year to:

  • celebrate women's achievements
  • raise awareness about women's equality
  • lobby for accelerated gender parity
  • fundraise for female-focused charities

*Read the full explaination and history of International Women's Day from their website here.


During the week of March 6-12, join the WiM community and Kia in celebrating women in manufacturing  by attending the great events below.

Support Our Cause With a Donation

Gloria Steinem, world-renowned feminist, journalist and activist once explained "The story of women's struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist, nor to any one organization, but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights."  So make International Women's Day your day and do what you can to truly make a positive difference for women.

See how a donation to the Women in Manifacturing Education Foundation (WiMEF)  helps women make breakthroughs in their careers.
