International Women’s Day is a day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women everywhere. Aki Shelton, our Executive Creative Director has curated six organizations that she believes are doing exciting things in the world for girls and women. Share with us your top organizations and let us know how you’re celebrating International Women’s Day.
- Women Shift Digital encourages and empowers women to join the growing digital/technology/media world as active and successful professionals. They provide opportunities and knowledge through series of debates, conferences, mentoring and workshops.
- Black Girls Code works to increase the number of women of color in the digital space. Through empowering girls ages 7 to 17, BGC hopes more girls become ‘innovators in STEM fields, leaders in their communities and builders of their own futures through exposure to computer science and technology.’
- Watermark connects, develops and advocates for the advancement of women in the workplace. It provides valuable leadership skills, comprehensive programming and cross-section connections to help women be successful and reach their career goals. Moving Brands was fortunate enough to have previously worked with Watermark in creating its new brand – one that would bring life to their positioning as a community of accomplished women and to grow their business objectives. You can see the full case study here.
- SheSays is an organization that provides free mentorship and events to women in the creative and marketing businesses. It is the only global creative network for women, spanning over 16 cities. Moving Brands is active in the San Francisco and New York chapters of SheSays.
- Women of Graphic Design was started by Tori Hinn as a degree project at the Rhode Island School of Design in 2013. The site focuses on sharing and exhibiting the contributions of women in graphic design while exploring issues of gender-equality in education provided by design institutions.
- The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) has worked to support and empower the lives of girls and young women to achieve their fullest potential for over 100 years. Innovative education and advocacy programs are just a few of the things WAGGGS does to help girls speak out and take action on issues affecting their lives and communities. We’re thrilled to announce we’re working with WAGGGS.
