In 1980, President Jimmy Carter declared the week of March 2-8 ‘National Women’s History Week’.
“From the first settlers who came to our shores, from the first American Indian families who befriended them, men and women have worked together to build this nation. Too often the women were unsung, and sometimes their contributions went unnoticed. But the achievements, leadership, courage, strength and love of the women who built America was as vital as that of the men whose names we know so well.”
Since 1987, the United States expanded National Women’s History Week to National Women’s History Month.
A woman in the professional world, regardless of her industry – brings great value and knowledge that is unique and different than her male counterparts. (Just like a male in the professional world brings great value and experience that is unique and different than his female counterparts). At MeetingPlay, we are grateful for all the unique and individual contributions that come together to create the many amazing event technology solutions we provide – including indoor wayfinding apps, mobile event apps, event registration solutions and more.
As the month of March comes to an end, and thus National Women’s History Month begins to wind down, we wanted to share some of our favorite words of professional advice from women throughout history, hoping to help uplift and encourage all event professionals.
