Inspiring Essentials share how they press for progress for International Women’s Day

8 March 2018

How do you press for equality? The World Economic Forum's 2017 Global Gender Gap Report revealed that gender parity – the equal contribution of women and men to every dimension of life, private and public – is over 200 years away. There's never been a more important time to stay motivated, push forward, and #pressforprogress.

On this International Women's Day, we asked some of the fearless women at Essence how they press for progress at work and beyond. Head over to our Facebook page to learn more about how they accelerate gender parity in their lives, their communities, and their careers.
