International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. Women in Lighting + Design (WILD) joins in this celebration to impact positive change for women. You’re invited to help WILD #BreaktheBias today and every day.

Bias – whether deliberate or unconscious – is holding women back in the workplace. It makes it harder for women to get hired and promoted, as well as negatively impacting their day-to-day work experiences. This hurts women and makes it harder for companies to level the playing field.

This year’s campaign is Break the Bias. Join WILD each hour at 12PM EST, 12PM CST, 12PM MST, and 12PM PST to discuss a theme on how the industry can #breakthebias as individuals and as a community:

  • 12PM EST: Learn to LEAD by example.
  • 12PM CST: VALUE and celebrate differences.
  • 12PM MST: Build confidence to CONFRONT.
  • 12PM PST: EMPOWER yourself and others.

You’re invited to join for some or all of these conversations. Zoom info here.
