DO, DOWNLOAD, DONATE: WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH
As March comes to a close, we want to encourage all staff to continue to celebrate Women’s History Month throughout the year! Steered by the DEI Council and Collective, our Women’s Employee Resource Group, we have curated opportunities to watch, listen, learn, and to continue to participate as a community. The Civic Women’s ERG aims to amplify female voices, create safe spaces to connect, and build an inclusive and intersectional community here at Civic. The chief aim is to spark personal and professional development while fostering a sense of belonging amongst Civic employees who identify in any capacity as women or allies.
