Celebrated since the early 1900’s, International Women’s Day was created to help honor the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. Annually, March 8th also serves as a call to action for gender equality. At eCornell, we believe in equality for all— and one of the best ways to ensure equality is through education.
According to UNICEF, nearly half a billion women cannot read and 62 million girls are denied an education world-wide. Women who cannot read—women who do not have an education—cannot earn a living. This means they can’t support themselves or their families, forcing them to be reliant on others for the basic necessities in life. If a woman is poverty-stricken or in an abusive relationship, this lack of education makes it impossible for her to change her circumstances.
To help combat that, today only we’re offering 25% off our Women in Leadership certificate program and we’re donating 5% of each sale to CARE. CARE is committed to ending poverty through the education and empowerment of women world-wide. To take advantage of this offer and help CARE, please go here and enroll today using promo code RULETHEWORLD.
