Hello Fourth Floories!

Women's History Month has ended but women's history has not. We are writing it every day. Let's not stop discussing challenges and celebrating victories. It was incredible to see the enthusiasm across social media and learning about what all of the communities are working on to effect change. We are one big community and let's continue lifting each other up.
