Rotary International has had an initiative to Empower The Girl for the last two years.
From Roxy Orr:
As your district chair for Empowering the Girl I would like to encourage you to bring attention to March 8th International Women's Day in your club.
The impact Rotary can have on young girls and women around the world is amazing. Think about scheduling a program or a club project that focuses on helping girls in your communities. 
If you would like any further information on Rotary's initiative please go the Rotary website and see all the projects posted on Rotary showcase. I would also be happy to provide additional information and ideas. 
Thank you for all you do for Rotary.

Dear club and district leaders,
International Women’s Day is 8 March, a time to honor the achievements of women around the world and raise awareness of the work that’s still needed to achieve equity. 

Join Rotary in celebrating International Women’s Day 2023! Our virtual, multi-day observance seeks to raise awareness about the barriers that women around the world face as professional and local leaders  and to build a supportive community to take collective action for change. The events, presented in English, are open to Rotary members and nonmembers of all genders.

The first event, on 8 March, is a Facebook Live session with Rotary President Jennifer Jones, Vice President Nicki Scott, and guests. 

Use #IWD2023  to find other events or post information about your own!
