Join us for a virtual celebration of influential women past and present! Old North Church & Historic Site is excited to offer its first digital speaker series program 10 on 10 Women in the Workforce on March 31 at 6:30pm. In this interactive webinar-style program you’ll hear from ten powerhouse women working in Boston today as they each offer a 5-minute spotlight presentation on a visionary woman from Massachusetts history. Presentations will explore the evolution of women’s professional identities and the ways in which each of these women have paved the way for equal rights. Afterward, stay online for a community chat about intersectional feminism, pay equity, and what we can each do today to advocate for equal rights for all in the workplace. Let’s commemorate one of 2020’s “Equal Pay Days,” March 31, with revelry and solidarity!
