ZS’s Frankfurt office celebrated International Women’s Day with a program centered on this year’s theme of #PressforProgress.
ZSers in Germany used the visions and missions of our Women’s Leadership Initiative and Pride@ZS resource groups as the basis of a role-playing game that aimed to foster a more inclusive environment for people of diverse backgrounds.
After gathering for cake and coffee, ZSers split into teams and engaged in a discussion around different kinds of challenging situations many women, members of the LGBTQ community—and even men—face in their daily lives. In addition to raising awareness around diversity, the dialogue prepared ZSers to identify potentially challenging situations in the future and offered alternative ways to act consciously.
Our Women’s Leadership Initiative in Frankfurt plans on continuing to #PressforProgress during future events in 2018.
