CROWN: April 2021 - A Look Back on Women's History Month

The Equity Office launched an internal Women's History Month initiative on March 5th where staff were encouraged to share their favorite books, woman-owned businesses, and historical figures, as well as attend the Smithsonian American Art Museum's Third Annual Women Filmmakers Festival virtually. The Equity Office will continue to recognize important month-long observances that pertain to our work. Click here for the Women's History Resource document that was distributed on March 30, and stay tuned for more information from Alfredo Hernandez on Diversity Month in April!
