The theme for this year's International Women's Day is #EachforEqual. In striving toward that goal the IWD website issues this call to action:
An equal world is an enabled world. How will you help forge a gender equal world? Celebrate women's achievement. Raise awareness against bias. Take action for equality.
The Oracle Groundbreakers team invites you to join us in celebrating International Women's Day, Sunday, March 8, 2020. As part of that celebration we hope you'll take advantage of the resources below, which highlight the contributions and achievements of people who are indeed helping to move the world toward #EachforEqual.
