International Women's Day 2019, Part 1

International Women's Day 2019

International Women’s Day is a time to observe the progress that countries are making to empower women and advance gender equality. This year’s International Women’s Day themes, Balance for Better and Think Equal, Build Smart, and Innovate for Change, call on us to consider innovative approaches for improving the lives of women and girls and to share how social protection systems, public services, and sustainable infrastructure could be leveraged to empower them and promote global social and economic stability.

Over the years, Mathematica and EDI have conducted numerous projects that provide insights to help empower women and girls and improve their well-being. Our work has helped changemakers identify effective approaches to improve access to education and training, better work opportunities, quality health care, and access to financial services that are essential for advancing gender equality and women’s empowerment.

In observance of International Women’s Day 2019 on March 8 we’ll share a few examples of how our colleagues at EDI are using their expertise to improve the lives of women and girls throughout the developing world. And starting on Thursday, March 7, we’ll use the hashtag #IWD2019 to feature highlights of their work on our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn channels.
