Celebrate International Women’s Day with Forté


International Women’s Day, held annually on March 8, is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women.

This year’s theme is Inspire Inclusion. We often hear the word inclusion used in tandem with diversity, as they are interconnected concepts. While diversity focuses on representation, inclusion is about how well the contributions, presence, and perspectives of different groups of people are valued and integrated into an environment. In an inclusive culture, people experience a genuine sense of equality and fairness of opportunity. Today is an opportunity to examine our contributions as leaders, managers, and colleagues - are we embracing diverse perspectives and creating new spaces that encourage everyone to bring their authentic selves to classrooms and offices? Are we positively contributing to the success and performance of our organizations?

This International Women's Day and beyond, join Forté in a commitment to #InspireInclusion as we unite to learn, inspire, and promote inclusiveness for all.

Since actions speak louder than words, we invite you to explore the below opportunities to take action and Inspire Inclusivity:
