  2. Participate in our Pass the Torch #ChoosetoChallenge virtual pledge challenge! I’m challenging YOU to show your support. Click here to take the pledge. Use the hashtags #IWD2021 and #PassTorch4Women in your post. Be sure to tag @PassTorch4Women too!

  3. Show your support! Share your pledge card and “Strike the Choose To Challenge” pose and share on social media to encourage people to commit to helping forge an inclusive world.
