Today, March 8, marks International Women’s Day, a day to celebrate women’s social, cultural, political, and economic achievements. International Women’s Day has been celebrated for well over a century; with the very first gathering in 1911 drawing over a million people. Today, the day is a collective celebration and belongs to everyone, everywhere. This year’s theme for International Women’s Day is “Choose to Challenge”, a pledge to champion and recognize women’s achievements and create a more inclusive world.
Tiphaine Louradour, President of ILS, said “As the first woman president of ILS, I wholeheartedly support the “Choose to Challenge” call to action. I will continue to encourage young women in their pursuit and passion for technology, through STEM education, programs, and employment. At ILS, we have a company culture of diversity and mentorship. I’m proud to lead a team that stands behind inclusiveness and joins me in celebrating the role of women in aerospace. We choose to challenge!”
