International Women's Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The Instructure offices around the globe are joining in the celebrations, including our Sydney office that partnered with CARE Australia.
What Does it Mean to Walk Beside Women?
For International Women’s Day 2020, APAC Instructure partnered with CARE Australia to raise awareness and funds for women and children living in impoverished conditions around the world. Over the week, our goal was to walk 10,000 steps each day and raise money throughout our social network.
We went for a walk together (in the rain!) after our office lunch, had a fundraising breakfast and invited a guest speaker from CARE to come in and share how the money raised goes towards creating a world more equal for women and girls through access to education, healthcare and anti-violence.
The APAC staff and leadership team hosted a session with Melinda Kenny, Head of Key Relations at CARE Australia.
Special thanks to Global Instructure team for their support and donations. The APAC team is on the fundraising leaderboard in second place! Help them reach the top and walk beside them by donating at www.walkinhershoes.org.au.
Happy International Women's Day from the Entire Instructure Team!
