Do you have a special woman in your life? Is she your mom? Sister? Girlfriend? Wife? Boss? Then you know what superpowers she has. Because women are ordinary human beings gifted with extraordinary capabilities to love and make this world a better place to live for everyone regardless of gender and race. And, this “better place” could mean the office or any workplace.
So, this March let us make the Women’s Month Celebration totally awesome because every woman deserves it! Here are our Women’s Month Celebration Ideas that you can have in the workplace.
Skills Development Training
Conducting Women’s Development Training is a wonderful addition to the Women’s Month Celebration in the workplace. Women who possess skills that make them feel empowered are also catalysts for significant societal change. But don’t just stick to the usual personality development training or the soft skills enhancement training.
Consider incorporating other types of training that not only develops skills, but can also be used to enhance women’s interests.
Instead of the usual training conducted in function rooms, have the courage to try something new such as setting up a crash course on Mixology and then prepare interesting rewards for those who participate. You can have mixology essential tools for prizes. From blender spatulas, wall mounted wine rack, to wine glasses and shakers - there's plenty of stuff to choose from that will make the celebration even more memorable.
Another unique yet exciting activity for Women's History Month Celebration would be to invite the whole team for a Handgun Basics Training, yes I know not your typical work activity, but fun nonetheless! Prizes may include paper targets or a gift certificate for a ladies night at the indoor shooting range. Incorporating these novel activities are a real game-changer for Women’s History Month celebration at work.
Studies show that taking a short break is indispensable to one’s productivity. Taking short breaks at work greatly improves the brain’s ability to focus on a complex task. Therefore, to ensure that the Women’s History Month celebration does not get in the way of your team’s productivity, allow them to take a break, a fun-filled break. A trivia hour is a good way to gather around in the lounge during work breaks and play a Trivia Hour game.
Trivia hour may consist of quizzes, a Q&A portion or the “Name the Dame” trivia about significant women in history and other influential women who made significant contributions in many aspects of our lives. Everybody at work can join and have the chance to win specific rewards. From simple questions like - Who is the current vice president of the United States? To mind boggling questions such as -What country was first to grant women the right to suffrage? These trivia questions can no doubt elicit laughter, fun and happiness in the workplace.
You can also play the Cooking or Baking Trivia Game which works best for women or men who love cooking and baking. Trivia questions do not have to be too serious. You may also add more funny questions to make the celebration even more memorable.
The Trivia game can be arranged as a team contest where women from different departments or divisions in the office compete with each other. The winning team will have a special treat to a free dinner set up in a separate room. Here are some dinner recipe ideas that do not take too much time for preparation but are just as perfect to be served in the workplace as a special treat to the winning team:
Don’t forget to add in some cocktails to make the day even more special! Here are some cocktail recipes that we would like to recommend:
Generate Funds for a Women’s Foundation
Fortunately, the United States is not short of women’s foundations for us to support. Gather some ideas or conduct a poll on which of the Women's Foundation echoes the same advocacies that your company also supports.
Focusing on gender equality? You may generate funds for the Chicago Foundation for Women. Is your company looking to support women deprived of justice? Check out the New York Women’s Foundation. Do you want to help women who have been impacted badly by the COVID-19 crisis? You may provide help to a Women’s Foundation in the Washington Area. Would you like to assuage the troubles of women and girls of war-stricken Ukraine? Visit the UN WOMEN website and donate some amount.
All these and more foundations for women that you can choose from to give your support. The most important thing is to make sure that every woman in the workplace who participates in this gift-giving or fund-raising activity understands very well the aim, as well as the meaning of why everyone should find it in their heart to support foundations like these.
