Developing Professionals Women’s History Month Trivia Night Event

The month of March marks an exciting time for the Pass the Torch for Women Foundation. Earlier this month, we celebrated International Women’s Day and left the event feeling incredibly inspired by the impact we can all make when we uplift, empower, and invest in women.

In honor of Women’s History Month, the Developing Professionals (DP) community is hosting a special Women’s History Trivia & Networking night this March 24th. Our DP Committee is working hard to develop great programming opportunities like this to support you on your professional journey, while developing a strong peer community along the way. We’ve got lots of exciting events coming up this year and we hope you can join us and take these opportunities to keep your torch burning bright! 

At this month’s virtual event, you’ll have an opportunity to not only connect with other Developing Professionals, but also meet with members of our DP Committee. Read below to learn more about us and some of our favorite female historical figures.
