International Women of Courage Award


Last week, at the State Department, first lady Michelle Obama joined Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to present the departments Award for International Women of Courage to seven female activists from Afghanistan, Guatemala, Iraq, Malaysia, Nigeria, Russia and Uzbekistan who have fought to end discrimination and inequality.  Mrs. Obama was quoted saying "As women, we must stand up for ourselves.  As women, we must stand up for each other.  As women, we must stand up for justice for all."

Is there someone in your organization that women can reach out to?  Is your organization committed to removing those barriers that prevent women from fully engaging their talents in achieving your profit goals for 2009??
