The theme of this year’s International Women’s Day (March 8!) calls on us to take steps to end the economic gender gap. At the Good Buy, UUSC’s online store, we’re especially interested in advancing equal pay for women workers and supporting women-owned businesses.
Learn more about the progress toward gender parity in this recent World Economic Forum report. Now is the time to talk about what we can do to accelerate its growth, while celebrating the social, cultural, economic, and political achievements women contribute daily.
What can you do?
- Check out these resources, which include ways to educate yourself and others about gender parity, start a conversation in your organization, and more!
