Happy International Women’s Day

Categories: Women's Leadership Development, YWCA Utah's Story

We honor International Women’s Day by sharing this year’s theme to “Break the Bias,” an idea that all women, especially those of color and part of the LGBTQ community, are deserving of peace, justice, freedom, and dignity. Our mission is to eliminate racism and empower women, so we take today to give room to women making a difference in our own backyard.

Liz Owens, YWCA Utah CEO, was part of a beautiful discussion held by the Utah Women & Leadership Project on how she learns, leads, and lifts for the well-being of women and girls in our state, particularly through an intersectional lens. Watch the replay below!

We’ve also partnered with Hip & Humble and Kendra Scott for International Women’s Day as they give back to YWCA Utah through their sales.

Hip & Humble

Hip and Humble is donating 100% of the profits from their “Kind Women for Womenkind” t-shirt sales to YWCA Utah from now until March 31.

About Hip & Humble: The Hip & Humble brand, and woman, know how to adapt. We’re not afraid to evolve, learn and make changes! And we do it through dialogue with our community, through an unwavering investment in women’s empowerment, and the causes and products we care about. In our products, sustainable ingredients and fibers win out over synthetics and chemicals, and fairly or locally sourced from humans wins out over mass-market goods. This makes our shelves as unique as you, our beloved customer!
