International Women’s Day

Celebrating women’s achievements and increasing visibility in Edgewater.

Each year on March 8 we celebrate women-owned and/or operated businesses and organizations in Edgewater on International Women’s Day. This international movement supports great causes and helps the business community by celebrating women’s achievements, raising awareness against bias, and taking action for equality. A challenged world is an alert world and we can all choose to challenge gender bias and inequality. #ChooseToChallenge

In lieu of our Annual International Women’s Day Crawl, we are presenting three video presentations that highlight the strength and perseverance of many of Edgewater’s business leaders as they share their inspirational and motivating stories. These video presentations will be available for viewing on Monday, March, 8.
