Women’s History Month celebrates, recognizes, and encourages the vital role of women in American history. Women in our region are also making history—whether they’re launching new startups;  discovering new opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM); climbing the career ladder; or returning to work after parenting young ones.

Several organizations are hosting events for all types of women in all types of industries in the upcoming weeks—and beyond. Interested? Check out:
