Celebrate International Women’s Day

The meetings industry is making great strides to address women’s equality and safety.

Friday, March 8 is International Women’s Day, and (forgive this quote from a man) in the words of former President Obama at an event in Winnipeg this week, “If you have no women in your meetings, you’re probably not a very good organization.”

There is a long list of steps the meetings and events industry has taken to protect, promote, and create opportunities for women. If you need some inspiration from women in events, or some practical tips on making your part of the industry better and safer for women, here are a few MeetingsNet stories highlighting women and gender issues from the last year.
