What did your Credit Union do to celebrate International Women's Day??
At Servus Credit Union in Alberta Canada, the Servus Women's Network held a lunch and learn for all of our network members to commemorate this occasion. We had approximately 85 employees comprised of Men and Women who attended this event. Our guest speaker was our Chief Marketing and Corporate Social Responsibility Officer Gail Stepanik-Keber. The presentation shared valuable information and statistics on how Women reshape the business world. The event was well received and employees are looking forward to many more valuable presentations and networking sessions in the future.
I also had the opportunity to attend 2 external International Women's Day events in my home town of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The first event I attended was a screening of a Sundance Film Festival documentary called "MissRepresentation". This is a must see film for women and men of all ages. The content is US based however provided thought provoking information on how social media effects the behavior and development of our society. Here is the link to preview the film: missrepresentation.org
The second external event was a fundraiser called "The 1000 Women, A Million Possibilities". This movement is managed by community members working together to maximize the potential of college students for the benefit of our city, province and world.
I curious to see how other women across the world celebrated this special day. Please share your experiences as the Servus Women's Network would like to explore ideas for events for our organization throughout the year.
