When: Thursday, March 07, 2019, 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Where: Z.J. Loussac Public Library : Wilda Marston Theater
Bridge Builders of Anchorage along with the Loussac Library is sponsoring a celebration to mark International Women's Day.
International Women's Day, March 8, 2019 is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. This day allows organizations large and small to highlight how valuable women are to today’s society. The UN states this year’s theme as: Think equal, build smart, innovate for change. The theme can focus on innovative ways in which we can advance gender equality and the empowerment of women, particularly in the areas of social protection systems, access to public services and sustainable infrastructure.
Our event will be on Thursday, March 7 at the Wilda Marston Theater, Loussac Library. 7 Women will speak for 7 minutes on any facet of the above theme, whatever resonates. We are using as a template the Arctic Entries format which in turn was inspired by This American Life and Stoop Stories of Baltimore. Prior to the program there will be a reception.
