Join us for Celebrating Women:

Friday, March 8th 11:30-1:30

for a very special luncheon in honor of

International Women’s Day!

You are invited to join us for a very special day of celebration and sisterhood as we gather at The Plaza Hotel in NYC.

International Women's Day 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 of celebration has occurred for well over a century and the theme for this year is #BalanceForBetter focusing on building a gender-balanced world. Everyone has a part to play - all the time, everywhere.

From grassroots activism to worldwide action, we are entering an exciting period of history where the world expects balance. We notice its absence and celebrate its presence.

Balance drives a better working world. Let's all help create
