In honor of International Women’s Day, the Evanston Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI) held a three-day Cookies for Change event leading up to the more than a century old day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.
In exchange for a cookie, WLI collected donations to support the YWCA Evanston/North Shore, an affiliate of the largest and oldest women’s organization in the U.S. The Evanston/North Shore branch serves the community through a variety of initiatives, including money management workshops as well as domestic and relationship violence prevention.
Cookies for Change is just one of the many activities planned at ZS offices around the world for International Women’s Day. At each of the 22 offices, ZSers are sending postcards to celebrate the women who made an impact in their lives.
Check out the ZSers in Evanston ready to send their postcards giving thanks.
