March is Women’s History Month, and March 8 is International Women’s Day. The team at Blue Wheel couldn’t be more excited to celebrate! We’re proud our team is over 60% female, and we wouldn’t be the company we are without the smart, hardworking women on our team.
For the entire month of March, we’re celebrating the accomplishments of women all around the world and throughout history.
Raising Awareness and Education
Every Monday in March, we’ll be sharing a post on our Instagram feed about women — celebrating achievements, raising awareness against bias, and providing suggestions for how to take action for equality.
On March 8, International Women’s Day, all of our social profile photos will change from our usual blue to purple to help spread the word about the holiday. We’re also encouraging members of the team at Blue Wheel to wear purple! Our name won’t be Purple Wheel, though. 😉 If you join us in wearing purple, be sure to tag #ChooseToChallenge and #IWD2021on social media to help raise awareness for the movement.
Highlighting Organizations Helping Women
For the month of March, Blue Wheel will feature nonprofit organizations that support women. Every week, we’ll be sharing Instagram stories where you can swipe up to learn more and donate to a nonprofit:
Dress for Success is a global not-for-profit organization that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
Project Beauty Share provides personal hygiene, cosmetics and beauty products to non-profit organizations who serve women and families overcoming abuse, addiction, homelessness and poverty to help restore hope and dignity in their lives.
Step Up propels girls living or going to school in under-resourced communities to fulfill their potential by empowering them to become confident, college-bound, career-focused, and ready to join the next generation of professional women.
Live Your Dream is a movement fiercely dedicated to ensuring every woman and girl has the opportunity to reach her full potential, be free from violence, and live her dreams. They provide advocacy and action opportunities to spread awareness about causes such as access to education, empowering girls, and ending violence against women.
Every Mother Counts works to make pregnancy and childbirth safe for everyone, everywhere. They work to achieve quality, respectful, and equitable maternity care for all by giving grants and working with partners and thought leaders to increase awareness and mobilize communities to take action.
We hope you’ll join our employees in supporting these great causes! Follow along on our Instagram to learn with us this Women’s History Month.
