The United Nations made March 8th international women's day. It's a day we come together to celebrate the great accomplishments of women around the globe. Last year the UN announced the 2021 theme for this year's celebration- “Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world.”
The theme celebrates the tremendous efforts by women around the world in shaping a more equal future and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic including the work of our amazing Guides, staff, and learners to help make the lives of those around them in in their communities brighter during the pandemic and beyond.
To celebrate this special day we have created a special series of classes focused on celebrating women!
International Women’s Day is a United Nations-sanctioned global holiday. Join others at GetSetUp to celebrate women and their influence on society and your own life!Join a class to Celebrate International Women's Day
