International Women’s Day celebration
Argonne will commemorate International Women’s Day on Friday, March 8, 2019, with a celebration from 11 am. to 1 p.m. in the Building 240 Conference Center, Room 1416. The event is sponsored by Argonne’s Women in Science and Technology Program (WIST).
International Women’s Day celebrates the achievements of women, raises awareness of gender inequality, and calls us to create a more gender-balanced world. This year’s theme, #BalanceforBetter, reminds us that gender balance drives a better world for all of us. Here at Argonne, our Core Values embolden us to create respectful, diverse and inclusive teams whose work will positively impact our world.
The celebration will feature outstanding Argonne women from across the laboratory and will highlight the ways in which inclusive and balanced teamwork gives our work the most impact. All are invited to attend. Participants are encouraged to wear purple, the color of International Women’s Day.
WIST is proud to join women across the globe in celebration and commitment to promoting gender equality in our community and the world. For more information about the event, contact chairperson Neelima Bayyapu.
