It’s hard to believe, but today is the last day of March, which also means it’s the last day of Women’s History Month. On today’s edition of Up To Speed, host Diana Alvear highlighted so many ways our V Teamers continued to celebrate women, plus one more WHM event you won’t want to miss!

On International Women’s Day, our Women’s CoLab event featured two members of our comms team, Diana Alvear and Raquel Wilson, co-hosting the powerful event whose lessons empowered participants to find and collaborate with mentors; navigate difficult work-family decisions; and be inspired by the career paths of women leaders across multiple industries.

We then hosted the Break The Bias VCG panel with Krista Bourne, Michelle Miller, Phil Leininger, Monica Hammond and Ryan Tucker, who all discussed ways to counteract ingrained stereotypes while continuing to champion and manifest gender equality.

We also had plenty of volunteer opportunities, including an initiative that gave V Teamers an opportunity to upload personalized videos of what Women’s History Month means to them.

And some members of our Verizon WAVE (Womxn’s Association of Verizon Employees) shared their thoughts on Women’s History Month and how they #BreakTheBias.

But wait, V Teamers, there’s more! There’s one more WHM event today: Wendy Taccetta, our Verizon Channel Chief, will have a conversation about leadership (among other topics) with journalist Martine Dennis, a British news anchor who’s appeared on Al Jazeera English and BBC World News. Want to check it out? The event starts at noon ET today on BlueJeans, and you can click here at that time to watch. You won’t want to miss it.

Even though Women’s History Month is coming to a close, our conversations and – more importantly – our actions aren’t coming to an end. At Verizon, we are dedicated to driving greater equity and inclusion within and beyond our walls. We continue to break the bias and move the world forward for all.

From everyone at Up To Speed: Happy Women’s History Month!
