British Columbia Golf Joins In Celebrating International Women's Day

As Friday, March 8th marks the celebration of International Women's Day, British Columbia Golf is pleased to take part in acknowledging and promoting the involvement of women of all ages and backgrounds in the game of golf.

Golf has made a concerted effort in recent years to bring more women into the game worldwide with events such as International Women's Golf Day being only one example. 

What can be stated without debate is that there have been many great female golfers over the years. Thirty-nine of them have earned enshrinement into the World Golf Hall of Fame including Canada's Marlene Stewart Streit

As a follow up to IWD there will be an Art Of Leadership For Women conference in Vancouver on April 5th, click HERE to learn more and to register. 

The following is an excerpt from the International Women's Day website, please take a moment to see what you can do to get involved and make your voice heard.

Happy International Women's Day

The International Women's Day 2019 campaign theme of #BalanceforBetter is a call-to-action for driving gender balance across the world. How will you help make a difference?

Right now is a great and important time in history to do everything possible to help forge a more gender-balanced world. Women have come a long way, yet there's still more to be achieved. From grassroots activism to worldwide action, we are entering an exciting period of history where the world expects balance. We notice its absence and celebrate its presence.

As the world celebrates International Women's Day, activity is underway celebrating women's achievements and tenaciously challenging bias.
