International Women's Day has been observed since the early 1900s, but has become a holiday formally recognized by the United Nations. Each year on March 8th, thousands of events are held throughout the world to inspire women and celebrate their achievements.
Women's Day Saint Louis teamed up with the St. Louis County Economic Council, continuing the tradition by focusing the St. Louis based event on women professionals and business owners. The event's slogan, "Growing your business, Growing your finances, Growing yourself," embodies the organization's mission to celebrate the efforts and passions of the many entrepreneurial and professional women in the Saint Louis area.
The day focused on providing value-added seminars to assist attendees in developing their careers and personal lives. Women's Day Saint Louis has partnered with Connections to Success, a Saint Louis based non-profit organization aimed at helping individuals achieve financial independence.
