She Creates

International Women’s Day 2020 is March 8, and Apple is supporting the visibility and achievements of women with special Today at Apple sessions held in select Apple Stores throughout the world.

From March 1–31, you can join inspiring female creators [I call them women entrepreneurs :-)] in the “She Creates” series to learn a new skill and gain a new perspective.

Oh, and the theme this year for IWD 2020 is #Each for Equal. Our individual thoughts and actions contribute to a larger goal of creating gender equality.
