The PEAK6 DEI Council is thrilled to celebrate the 102nd anniversary of women in the United States winning the right to vote!
On August 26, 1920, their goal was achieved with the 19th Amendment, women won the right to vote and hold public office. Women in public service and government have long served our nation by working to break down barriers, enforce laws, implement new ideas, and change people’s attitudes. Women’s Equality Day gives us an opportunity to reflect on the many benefits of true equality and the role of women in our public life. That is why we are excited to partner with and donate to two non profits, “Feminist Majority Foundation & “Equality Now, Inc.”, that are dedicated to assisting women get full equality in all aspects. Both organizations specialize in supporting women bridge the pay gap, enhance feminist leadership, and increase the support of reproductive health rights.
We will be doing a week-long fundraiser for the two organizations. Remember that when donating in Bright funds make sure to select the company match option for PEAK6 to match it and increase the donation.
