Celebrate International Women’s Day with Forté

Let's #BreakTheBias together.

International Women’s Day, held annually on March 8, is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for a more gender-balanced world. You can make a positive difference for women everywhere with simple, everyday actions.

Forté has the resources for you to amplify women’s voices on social media, events for you to build your leadership and self-empowerment wheelhouses, and inspiring messages for you to read from our Forté community. We even curated an International Women’s Day playlist to get you motivated!

The theme of International Women’s Day 2022 is #BreakTheBias, and we encourage you to get involved.
