DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION ARTICLES OF INTEREST

National Women’s History Month in March annually encourages us to honor the women who came before us and fought for equality among all races and genders.

HOW TO OBSERVE #WomensHistoryMonth: Take the time to learn more about women’s history this month. If you do, chances are it’ll help you truly understand and appreciate the strength and determination of women across the country over hundreds of years. Use #NationalWomensHistoryMonth or #WomensHistoryMonth to post on social media and show the world how you are celebrating! To this day, some people still don’t fully understand the leaps and bounds women have made in the United States.
