International Women's day is upon us! In 1909, 15,000 women marched through the streets of New York demanding improved pay, shorter hours and voting rights. At PowerToFly we're all marching together by pushing for inclusive workplaces that lead to gender equality. It's our mission to work only with companies who understand that workplace equality is achievable- look at OpenTable whose female CEO has pledged to fill her company with 50% women by 2020, and Dow Jones who hired a woman at nine months pregnant to lead their tech team.
