Save the date for the 9th annual Rise to the Top event, celebrating International Women’s Day. Hosted by the Partnership’s Women’s Business Alliance (WBA), Rise to the Top features compelling, candid conversations from outstanding female executives discussing the challenges and triumphs of succeeding as a woman in today’s business environment. International Women's Day is a global celebration of the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. This year also marks the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, guaranteeing and protecting a woman's constitutional right to vote. We encourage you to wear purple in honor of International Women's Day. We hope you'll make Rise to the Top your destination to celebrate the women on your team, including women's employee resource groups, office administration and top volunteers.
