Hello Saints! Monday March 8th, was International Women’s Day. International Women’s Day is a global holiday celebrated annually on March 8 to commemorate the cultural, political, and socioeconomic achievements of women. It is also a focal point in the women’s rights movement, bringing attention to issues such as gender equality, reproductive rights, and violence against women.
To celebrate this day, we invited a guest speaker to join us for an empowerment discussion. Katie Keppieri is a TED speaker, writer, social entrepreneur and activist. She gave a talk to our staff and students about positive self image, women’s empowerment, leadership and social media. It was a very inspirational discussion and was a great way to celebrate all women at Acumen.
