We’re Proud to Celebrate Women. Throughout March, ICF celebrated Women’s History Month and donated more than $8,000 to organizations that support women’s initiatives. We sponsored The Women's Center's 37th annual leadership conference, which featured an amazing lineup of women speakers. More than a dozen ICF employees attended the conference, and several volunteered their time to support the event. Our sponsorship will provide 26 social connection support group sessions to over 100 domestic violence victims.
For International Women's Day on March 8, our Women Employee Community Network (ECN) hosted a global hybrid event focused on career advancement. The event included a guest speaker presenting on personal branding; a panel of ICF women sharing the challenges they face and the support we all need; and closing remarks from our Women’s ECN leaders. Employees gathered at our Reston HQ and local offices throughout the world. Our North Carolina office took this opportunity to give back to women in their community while networking with colleagues. They collected, packed, and donated 34 bags of toiletries for women at the Durham Rescue Mission.
As part of our commitment to advancing opportunities for women everywhere, we also launched a giving campaign to help empower, women, girls, and members of the transgender community – supporting three organizations: the U.S. National Committee for UN Women, Equality Now, and the National Center for Transgender Equality.
