Who’s Hiring? 11 Organizations Supporting Women and Girls

Who’s Hiring? 11 Organizations Supporting Women and Girls was originally published on Idealist Careers.

As we step into March, you may be considering how you can be part of the global effort to advance gender parity. That’s because this month is internationally-recognized as Gender Equality Month, during which time people everywhere are encouraged to reflect on the ways gender bias impacts the lives of women.

Did you know that women on average have just 75% the same rights as men? This unfortunate reality is the result of systemic issues, discriminatory laws, and archaic views on gender roles that have long prevented women from enjoying equal rights.
