Looking Back: International Women’s Month
Each year in March, International Women’s Month is celebrated around the world. In fact, International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8. To commemorate the holiday, The United Family asked team members to share their stories about the many outstanding women across the company. We asked a simple question: What women have made a difference in your life?
Here are just a few of the many amazing compliments we received from team members across the company!
Comments like these help shine on United’s culture.
You might be wondering why the month of March is celebrated for women. According to the National Women’s History Alliance, in 1980 President Jimmy Carter gave a speech designating March 2-8, 1980 as National Women’s History Week. By 1987, the United States Congress declared March as National Women’s Month in perpetuity. Each year a special Presidential Proclamation is issued to honor the extraordinary achievements of American women.
Thank you, to all the trailblazing, hard working and dedicated women.
Happy, Happy, Happy International Women’s Month! The United Family is so grateful to have you.
